OCTOBER IS VOCATIONAL SERVICE MONTH 2

 
“Rotary’s high ethical standards are also demonstrated in The Rotary Code of Conduct, formerly known as The Declaration of Rotarians in Business and Professions. This code defines a set of values that are appropriate for the personal conduct of Rotarians in business, as professionals, as community leaders and in retirement. This code deserves to be read, discussed and debated during Vocational Service month.”   Extract - Murray Verso Networker Edition 8 October 2014

1. Exemplify the core value of integrity in all behaviours and activities
 
2. Use my vocational experience and talents to serve in Rotary
 
3. Conduct all my personal, business, and personal affairs ethically, encouraging and fostering high ethical standards as an example to others
 
4. Be fair in all dealings with others and treat them with the respect due to them as fellow human beings
 
5. Promote recognition and respect for all occupations which are useful to society
 
6. Offer my vocational talents to provide opportunities for young people, to work for the special needs of others, and to improve the quality of life in my community
 
7. Honour the trust that Rotary and fellow Rotarians provide and not do anything that will bring disfavour or reflect adversely on Rotary or fellow Rotarians
