Welcome to Altrusa of Northeastern CT

Becoming an Altrusan

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.


Executive and professional women who are actively engaged in their careers, or who have recently retired, are eligible for membership, providing that they do not belong to any other classified service organization.


Members must be willing and able to attend meetings on a regular basis and to participate in club projects and committees.
