A History of Getting Things Done

  • In 1968, the National Eye Institute was established by the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson.  Lions sent approximately 100,000 letters and telegrams to Congress, urging votes for the new eye institute. 
  • A Lions’ photo exhibit, sponsored by Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS), was displayed in the Rotunda of the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. the week of November 14, 2011. These photos raised awareness of Lions’ global efforts to meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding.
  • On October 2, 2012, members of Lions clubs from all around the country joined White House staff and U.S. government officials in Washington, D.C. to recognize Lions club members as Champions of Change
  • Lions were successful in securing 293 co-sponsors in the U.S. House and 70 in the U.S Senate to pass the “Lions Clubs International Century of Service Commemorative Coin Act," which was signed into law by President Barack Obama on October 5, 2012. 
  • In March of 2014, Lion Leaders met with members of Congress as part of the inaugural Lions Hill Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. (Hill Day).
  • On June 7, 2017, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran from Kansas spoke on the Senate floor about his bipartisan resolution to commemorate the Centennial of Lions Clubs International. The resolution, S. Res. 174, passed unanimously. Senator Moran is a long-time Lion and was a co-sponsor for the Lions Clubs Centennial Commemorative Coin.

 

 

VOPA

The Volunteer Organization Protection Act (VOPA) U.S. House Bill 2432 impacts every Lion in the United States. Under current law, service clubs have been forced to dissolve when they have been unable to afford the costs of litigation resulting from a volunteer's negligence. VOPA can help protect your club from being drawn into lawsuits should an accident occur during a Lions club service activity or event.
