In compliance with Article VI, Section 2 of the International By-Laws, I hereby issue the Official Call for the 2010 International Convention. Our 93rd International Convention will be held in Sydney, Australia. It begins at 9 a.m. June 28 and ends July 2. 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. Sydney is a world-class city, a “dream destination” with a distinct culture, customs and cuisine. The “Lions Precinct” at the convention will place Lions in the midst of a vibrant and fascinating cosmopolitan area. Sydney will be a spectacular setting for fun, fellowship and learning. During Convention Week Lions will participate in helpful seminars. They will witness the installation of a new president, the presentation of the 2010 Humanitarian Award to Noble Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai of Kenya, an inspiring speech by pilot-hero Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the enjoyable and newly installed Global Youth Music Competition, the World Ginkgo Awards, the ever-popular flag ceremony, outstanding entertainment and our festive parade. The Lions of Multiple District 201 will welcome their visitors and ensure their stay is enjoyable, productive and comfortable. It will be my pleasure to share with you a year where Lions Moved to Grow and moved our association forward in new and fruitful ways. Signed by me at Oak Brook, Illinois, United States of America, this 10th day of May 2010. Warmest regards, Eberhard J. Wirfs, International President The International Association of Lions Clubs
