President’s Message

See the Possibilities

Dr. Jung Yui Choi

Greetings Lions,

Creating a successful club is similar to growing any business. You begin by outlining a mission, creating a plan, and putting that plan into action. It takes hard work, but when you succeed, you can step back and see the beauty in what you built.

When Lions ask me what is the key to building a successful club, I ask them to close their eyes and try to envision what they want from their club. Because in order to do something, you first need to be able to see it. And what more perfect time to reflect on what we see than in the month of October.

In addition to being Vision Awareness Month, October is also Lion and Leo Membership Growth Month. It’s a time to focus our energies on the original Lions mission – vision – and also on finding new ways to invigorate our clubs.

So, as you reflect on how you’d like to grow as a club, ask yourself some of these questions: What do you envision for your club? What kind of impact do you want on to have on your community? How involved do you want members to be? How big or small do you see your role in making it all happen?

You cannot build anything – not a building, not a business, and not a meaningful service club – without a vision. So, let’s make this October one in which we see not only what’s in front of us, but what could be. That takes true vision.

And no one sees possibilities better than Lions.
