Dallas Altrusa Club Information

Altrusa attracts a wide cross section of members. The reasons they become Altrusans are as varied and numerous as the communities in which they live. Most join because they were invited by a friend or associate they trust. Many look for an opportunity to meet new friends; others to advance their skills. Some join to meet the people who shape their communities. Others want to add a meaningful new experience to their lives. Learn more about what we do – if you like us, contact us so that we may guide you in the process of becoming an Altrusa leader in your community.
