Lions Story of the Week

Chelsey "Sully" SullenbergerWe’re excited to share some big news: Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III will be joining us for International Convention in Australia as the keynote speaker.

Sully was the pilot behind US Airways Flight 1549, which made an emergency crash landing in the Hudson River after experiencing engine failure in January of 2009. The skillful landing orchestrated by the former Air Force pilot and flight instructor saved the lives of 150 passengers.

He’ll deliver his address at the third Plenary Session on Friday, July 2. We’re looking forward to hearing what he has to say and hope you’ll enjoy the speech.  Register now for International Convention to ensure you get a seat at this hero’s address.
