Our Leadership -

District 11 C1, Zone 1


Lions Clubs International President











Douglas X. Alexander of Brooklyn New York, was elected to serve as international president of Lions Clubs International at the association's 103rd International Convention, held virtually, June 25 through June 29, 2021.

"Every life has its defining moments.  Ask any Lion and more often than not, they won't tell you the date they joined a club.  Instead, they'll tell you the time that service rooted itself into their heart for good."

If you’re interested in volunteering, leading projects, networking and having fun – you can do all of this and more as a Lions club member. As a Lion, you’ll perform local volunteer work to improve your community – and communities around the world.


You can join a local club that meets in person. A cyber club that meets online. Or a special interest club based on your profession, a hobby or anything you care about. You can plan a local project to protect the environment. Recycle eyeglasses to help the working poor. Or bring clean water to a remote village. Whatever you choose, you’ll be sharing, caring and making a difference.
