Board of Directors

The Lions Vision Resource Network volunteer Board of Directors is made up of recognized leaders across many areas of expertise. They represent the broad diversity of our membership and contribute significant amounts of time, talent, and energy to further the mission of the organization.

We are proud that over half of our 11-person Board of Directors are members of the blind and visually impaired vision community. Over half are also active members of local Lions Clubs, as required by our bylaws. Contact us if you are interested in a Board position.
