President’s Message

Building the Future We Want to See

Lions Club International President Brian Sheehan

Hello, Lions!

Do you have big dreams for your club? Do you want to grow your membership, get young people more involved, or expand the kinds of service projects you do? When you dream big—and I know Lions like to dream big—it can feel overwhelming and hard to know where to start.

But here’s the big secret of Lions—you don’t have to do it alone. The Global Action Team can help energize your efforts. We have a global foundation, LCIF, that’s here to empower you with financial support. And there are more than 48,000 clubs around the world who are trying to do exactly what you are—build the club of their dreams. So go to local conventions and meet the Lions in your district. Trade ideas, get phone numbers, make connections.

The Seal Beach Lions Club in California didn’t become North America’s largest club by accident. They recognized they wanted to grow, and they wanted a membership that reflected their community—a diverse range of ages and life experiences. But rather than begin a heavy recruitment plan, they focused on building the kind of club that others would want to join. And it worked. You can do it, too.

Decide what is important to your club and then go after it. Build it. The results will come.

Make a great day,

Lions Clubs International President Sheehan
