About Vocational Service

Rotary is a leadership organization.  We’re made up of local business, professional, educational, and civic leaders.  We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, and through that, we’re able to get things done in our communities.

What is the Object of Rotary?

The Object of Rotary is a philosophical statement of Rotary’s purpose and the responsibilities of Rotarians. The concept of vocational service is rooted in the second object, 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

Rotarians put these ideals into action by:

  • Talking about their profession in their clubs and taking time to learn about fellow members occupations.
  • Using their skills and expertise to serve their community.
  • Practicing their profession with integrity, and inspiring others to behave ethically through their words and actions.
  • Helping young people achieve their career goals.
  • Guiding and encouraging others in their professional development.

By undertaking these activities, Rotarians bring vocational service to life. Vocational service is the essence of Rotary and serves as the foundation from which Rotarians serve their communities around the world.
