Hong Kong Business Leader Elected President of Lions Clubs International

Our International Convention ended today with the election of Wing-Kun Tam as our 2011-2012 International President. Tam, a Lion from Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR), The People’s Republic of China, is the chairperson of a world-wide group of air transportation companies – and the first person from China to serve as international president of the world’s largest service club organization.

President Tam’s theme, “I Believe” expresses the thought that the Lions of the world have created a culture organized around the value of giving back. And a belief that one person truly can make a difference.

We’re also pleased to announce that International President Tam will be joining this blog to provide special “President’s Blog” posts. Through our blog, he will connect you to other Lions around the world – and their projects and activities.

Please leave a comment to send your congratulations to our new International President.

    It was an honor to meet you and listen to your inspiring message of “Believe” last night. I hope and pray that you continue on with keen and boldness to promote the Lions motto of “Service” to our global community as we tread on the present economic challenges. May you inspire all of us Lions to do the same as you resonate your belief to all those you touch and affect.

    Congratulations, Lion Wing-Kun Tam for being elected as the International President of our great organisation of service. Your slogan “I believe” is really meaningful and powerful, plus your appeal for tree plantation is a timely issue. Our club has already started a tree plantation project in the mountains of Nepal. Good Luck for your grand success.

    Congratulations to International President Wing-Kun Tam. I believe you can make a great innovation for the Lions.
    Lions always send relief items to the needy. This is a temporary remedy for them. I believe that providing knowledge to the less fortunate in our community will do a great job for them. Teach them how to earn a living and be independent and self sufficient. Someday you sure will see that the one you helped today will be the one helping others!
