Founded in 1917, Altrusa International, Inc. is a world-wide organization of executives and professional leaders who are dedicated to improving their communities through personal service. Altrusa was started as a women's organization but today is open to everyone. Through more than 390 clubs and approximately 10,000 members, Altrusans pool their resources and talents to achieve what individuals alone cannot. Altrusans believe that people working together can make a difference...and are willing to prove it!
Altrusa International of Temple, Texas, Inc. seeks women and men of like mind to become Altrusans to develop ideas and to lead the community with projects that make an impact on the quality of life for everyone. Lives are changed with the combined talents and skills of Altrusans everyday.
President Silvia has appointed a Centenary Committee who have been charged with coordinating Altrusa’s 100th Birthday celebrations. 11th April 2017 is a special day and we are hoping that clubs and districts will look at ways that Altrusans around the world can celebrate this achievement. Each district has a representative on the committee which is chaired by President Elect Leanne Milligan.
