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.

Club Presentations/Information
Robby Schiller and Ray Ocampo, U.S. Border Patrol Officers, to give us on-the-ground perspective and updates on a very hot topic throughout this decade, especially the past few years. While Schiller’s love of hiking, tracking and his years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Namibia led to him joining the Border Patrol, Ocampo’s story touches the core of the debate: he is a naturalized U.S. citizen from the Philippines who came here as a young child, grew up in Chino Hills, became a citizen in 2010, and joined the Border Patrol. 
Ironman Triathlon Hall of Famer and Carlsbad High School graduate Julie Moss gave a wonderful talk about her triathlon career, and how her life changed dramatically from her famous crawl across the finish line in the 1982 Ironman.
Bruce Bandemer spoke about our Carlsbad Rotary Foundation. The total portfolios value as of 9/30/18 is $431,763.
 
The current allocation is: 58% equities, 42% cash & fixed income. Due to our long term 10+ year horizon we are going to move carefully to a 65% equity exposure and 35% cash & fixed income allocation.  Investment products utilized: Actively managed Mutual funds (purchased at NAV) as well as Index funds and selective ETF’s. 
Carlsbad City Manager Scott Chadwick opened the program by recalling lessons learned from his great aunt, San Diego native Florence Chadwick, who became globally renowned as the first woman to swim the English Channel in both directions in 1950-51. Scott is the former San Diego City Manager and COO, and a city government wonk, telling us, “I love city government, municipal codes, administrative policies, everything about how government works – and finding better ways to run it more effectively.”
Nick Schuler is a Carlsbad resident and Deputy Chief of CAL FIRE. Nick has one of the busiest and most critical jobs in the world: overseeing California firefighters’ response to the state’s wildfires. He’s been with CAL FIRE for more than 20 years, in charge of South San Diego County and statewide air operations, and on a task force with California Highway Patrol and other agencies to respond to disasters. His responsibility covers 31 million acres in California.
