Maintaining Our Mission – and Global Impact
Lions Clubs International develops leaders. Our leaders serve at every level of our organization and oversee everything from local membership to the organization’s international direction.
- Our members have the opportunity to get involved in leading small projects and large initiatives.
- We organize Lions clubs into districts, and each district has a governor.
- Leading all of our clubs is our international president, who works with a dynamicgroup of officers and directors.
Founded in Chicago, Lions Clubs International has grown into a worldwide organization, helping where help is needed for nearly 100 years.
To ensure that Lions can do the work that is needed – and do it with fellowship and integrity – we structure our organization locally, regionally and internationally.
Our leaders come from around the world – but they all share a common bond: To Serve. They make their communities better. They support Lions in other countries. And they are ready to help wherever help is needed.
Our international president serves for just one year. It is a demanding position, requiring international travel, meetings and administration.
