DSBE has been represented in the East Palo Alto Bayshore Rotary Club since August of 2013 when it was gifted a membership by an anonymous donor.
Currently, DSBE's CEO is its corporate representative to the club.
DSBE's founder is a former member and newsletter editor of the Santa Clara West Rotary Club (which subsequently merged into the Santa Clara Rotary Club.)
DSBE further pledges to become a member of the Windhoek Rotary Club and assure it be represented in it by a corporate officer if it expands into Namibia as currently planned. If Rotary International expands into Ha Noi by the time DSBE does per plan, then it will also assure it shall be represented in it by a corporate officer in Ha Noi's club.
The founder is hoping to be able to persuade DSBE's Board of Directors into giving him at least one of those international assignments.
