International President’s Message:

"We Serve" – Dr. Naresh Aggarwal

President’s Message


Dear Lion,

Every one of our 1.4 million members is passionate about service. And we know we can achieve great things by working together. This is the Power of We—and why we created the Global Action Team. It brings together our leadership, membership and service, and puts the entire Lions network to work for your club.

The Global Action Team consists of:

  • Global Leadership Team (GLT) to identify leaders and development opportunities for every Lion.
  • Global Membership Team (GMT) to help clubs find new members and keep current Lions coming back.
  • NEW! Global Service Team (GST) to provide service resources and project support.

Service has always been the heart and soul of Lions. That’s why we developed this service-aligned structure to help clubs around the world take action to serve more people. If every one of our Lions served just 8 people per month, we would impact 134 million people this year—a big step toward our goal of helping 200 million people per year by 2021. This is the Power of Action.

Learn more about what this global network can do for your club by visiting the Global Action Team webpage.
