2020-2021 International President

Now is the time  to come together.

It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve as the 103rd International President of Lions Clubs International. Over the past year, I experienced the overwhelming good Lions delivered to over 275 million people—more than ever before. Though I have been a Lion myself for over 40 years, it has been truly humbling to see the innovative and diverse ways our clubs serve their local communities around the world.

My experiences as International President have reminded me of just how critical our service is to people everywhere and the incredible contribution it’s making to our future. And while the past year has brought with it great highs, the world, as we all know, has experienced many changes. New global challenges have emerged, impacting our everyday lives and our ability to work, play, communicate and serve in the ways we’ve always done. 

passion and conviction, lifting up others through our diversity of service. I’m so proud of all our members.

In this new Lions year, I’ve been asked to serve another term as International President. I am honored to continue leading us through this changing landscape, and I’m grateful for the trust you’ve placed in me. Yet, it is the trust I have in each and every Lion that gives me hope and confidence in our ability to lead, to safely serve and to restore hope to the world in this historic moment. 

Thank you all,

Dr. Jung-Yul Choi
