Within Vocational Service the role of an individual Rotarian is to
maintain personal and professional conduct in accordance with Rotary
Principles and to respond to projects that their club has developed. The
role of the Rotary Club is to increase employment opportunities in the
community, promote a fair workplace environment, and raise vocational
awareness, all through the development of projects that help members of
all classifications contribute their vocational talents.
Vocational Service focuses on:
- Adherence to, and promotion of, the highest ethical standards in all
