Our Motto The motto of The National Beta Club is "Let Us Lead by Serving Others." This motto, more than simply a catchy phrase, states the philosophy upon which The National Beta Club is based. Service to others is indeed one of the most important characteristics of Beta Club membership. Opportunities to serve are found in every school and community situation, whether large or small - urban, suburban or rural. There are needs that could and should be addressed by Beta members in every school and community. “Let us lead by Serving Others”
