LESI Past Presidents Council
“Ask not what LESI can do for you but what you can do for LESI"
The Past Presidents Council serves as advisory to the LESI Board on issues which the LESI Board may wish to consult including issues which have likely occurred in the past and on which the Council can share past experiences.
The Council provides support to incoming international LESI presidents/president- elects, sharing their experience in leading LESI which hopefully will assist in enhancing the work of the new leaders.
The Council serves as mentor to national societies (other than the past president’s own society), addressing and advising on issues from the national society’s board.
LESI has benefited from the guidance and leadership of numerous individuals through the years.
