The Rotary Club of Carlsbad is a leadership organization made up of local business professionals and civic leaders.  We meet regularly, to get to know each other, form friendships and through that we are able to get things done in the Carlsbad, North San Diego County and the International community.
We are proud of the philanthropic work that we do locally in Carlsbad, and we are fortunate to very active members involved in international projects in Mexico, South America and South Africa.
In 2018, our club received the Best Club in the District Award (mid-sized category)!  Come join us and find out why.
