Our Structure

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 Leadership

Leaders at every level are volunteers. The organization supports our leaders with a wide range of tools, an international convention and impressive leadership development.

Today, our "We Serve" motto continues, represented
by more volunteers in more places than any other
service club organization in the world. We are friends,neighbors and leaders ready to help our communities grow and thrive.

Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed in our own communities and around the world with unmatched integrity and energy.

Our 45,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization.

We're also one of the most effective. We get the job done.
