ImageWhen professionals join a Rotary club, they do so as a representative of their particular business or profession. This gives Rotarians the dual responsibility of representing their vocation within the club and of exemplifying the ideals of Rotary within the workplace.
Vocational service focuses on:
  • Adherence to, and promotion of, the highest ethical standards in all occupations, including fair treatment of employers, employees, associates, competitors, and the public.
  • The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, not just your own or those that are pursued by Rotarians.
  • The contribution of your vocational talents to the problems and needs of society.
  • The values expressed in The 4-Way Test and the Rotary Code of Conduct ( formerly called: Declaration for Rotarians in Business and Professions), which promote high ethical standards in the workplace, a central theme of Rotary throughout its history.
  • Observed each October, Vocational Service Month spotlights Rotary club projects related to this avenue, offering opportunity for clubs and districts to use their professional skills in service projects.
