Accomplished people from around the world have led our great association in its over 100-year history. While each international president brings a unique perspective and expertise to Lions Clubs International, there has (and always will be) a single constant that unites all Lions: service. With this as a guide, each president is committed to helping clubs increase their service, and as a result, their impact on our local and global communities.
Our International President
A biomedical scientist, International President Gudrun Yngvadottir brings creativity and innovative thinking to every obstacle she encounters. Her work ethic and unwavering determination stem from her Icelandic upbringing--a small but mighty country where the citizens boast a long history over overcoming obstacles and achieving success.
Beyond the Horizon
There’s a world of service yet to be reached, even by Lions. During International President Gudrun Yngvadottir’s year at the helm of Lions International, we’ll reach within our district, clubs and selves to reach levels of humanitarian good the world has never known.
Harnessing the Power of 1.4 Million Lions
International President Yngvadottir’s programs and initiatives will focus around four key elements of Lions International that are important to moving the association forward.
