In compliance with Article VI, Section 2 of the International By-Laws, I hereby issue the Official Call for the 2012 International Convention. Our 95th International Convention will be held in Busan, Republic of Korea. It begins at 10 a.m. June 22 and ends June 26. The purpose of the convention is to elect a president, first vice president, second vice president and 17 members of the International Board of Directors and to transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting. Busan is an exciting, fast-paced, world-class city with a multitude of fine restaurants and tourist attractions. It also is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, surrounded by blue mountains, rivers and lovely beaches. Lions will immensely enjoy its mild temperatures, the unique Korean culture and wonderful cuisine, most notably the fresh seafood. Convention Week is a splendid, unforgettable experience full of fellowship, fun and learning. Lions will enjoy many enduring traditions such as the stirring flag ceremony, the festive international parade and the lively, multicultural international show. The memorable plenary sessions include a keynote speech by Dr. Margaret Chan, the director-general of the World Health Organization, the presentation of the 2012 Humanitarian Award and the installation of the 2012-2013 international president and district governors. The Lions of Korea will warmly welcome their visitors and ensure that this convention is absolutely outstanding in every regard. This convention will be a vibrant testimony to the power of We Believe as well as to the enduring value of family bonds of Lions. I strongly encourage you to be a part of this special Lions event. Signed by me at Oak Brook, Illinois, United States of America, this 7th day of May 2012. Warmest regards, Wing-Kun Tam, President The International Association of Lions Clubs
