Vocational Service 2020-21
The concept of Vocational Service is rooted in the Second Object of Rotary, which calls on Rotarians to encourage and foster:
- High ethical standards in business and professions
- The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations
- The dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society.
As Rotarians, we have many opportunities to take these notions and place them into action. Here are just a few suggestions:
- Discuss your profession at your club meetings and take the time to learn about your fellow members.
- Use your expertise and skills in your community, perhaps in a service project.
- Practice your profession with integrity, and inspire others to behave ethically.
- Coach and mentor youth who might be interested in your field.
- Consider the Four-Way Test in the workplace and your daily life.
For Rotary Year 2020 / 2021, each club has the opportunity to earn five (5) points in the category of Vocational Service.
- Nominate a Rotarian for the Robert Stubbs Guardian of Ethics Award* and a candidate for the Lee Arrendale Vocational Excellence Award* by January 31, 2021, and recognize each at a club meeting. [Two (2) points]
