MEET LA5'S LEADERSHIP TEAM

Since its founding, the Rotary Club of Los Angeles has provided a forum for prominent people from business, the professions, government, and academia in the United States and around the world. They have found the club to be an excellent venue to present their views on topical issues and encourage support for their programs and causes.

A selective club, LA5 offers a rare opportunity to be counted among the top leaders of Los Angeles.
