Club Information

Interested in helping and inspiring others, networking, giving back to the community and building lasting friendships? If so, The Rotary Club of Carlsbad is the club for you!  

The Rotary Club of Carlsbad is a dynamic leadership and philanthropic organization made up of local business professionals and civic leaders. We serve Carlsbad, North San Diego County, and the international communities. We build friendships, enjoy strong camaraderie, and have fun.   

Chartered in 1939, the Rotary Club of Carlsbad is proud of our 80 years of service and fellowship to serve people in need and to help others. That’s who we are. We are proud of the philanthropic work that we do locally in Carlsbad, and we are fortunate that our active members are involved in international projects in Mexico, Costa Rica, and South Africa.   

Our club resonates with fellowship — whether at club meetings or outside events. We thoroughly enjoy being with each other, creating from our friendships a desire to support one another in life and work, service or social endeavors. We adhere to the Rotary 4-Way Test in all we do: 

1. Is it the TRUTH? 

2. Is it FAIR to all concerned? 

3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 

4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? 

We meet almost every Thursday evening at the Hilton Garden Inn, located at 6450 Carlsbad Blvd, Carlsbad, CA 92011. Meetings begin at 6:30, but we encourage you to come at 6 p.m.  to socialize and network.  Visit our event calendar to find the activities in which we engage: socials, barbecues, community service projects, global initiatives, fundraising, feeding the needy, inspiring and supporting education — and so much more!   

Our meetings feature dynamic and interesting speakers from all walks. They present relevant messages to our mission — "Service Above Self" — accompanied by a full dinner with wine/beer available as well. Our meetings offer a casual environment, allowing members and guests an opportunity to develop friendships and establish business and social networks.  

 If you have any questions about Rotary and/or club membership, we are delighted to meet with you in-person.  Better yet, we would be honored to have you as our guest at one of our dinner meetings.  Please contact our Membership Chair, Mr. Pete Rogers at Pete_Rogers@glic.com, or myself, Griff Lewis, at griffith.t.lewis@gmail.com

Yours in Service,  

Griff Lewis
