The underlying premises for Vocational Service is to:
- Encourage high ethical standards in business and professions.
- Recognise the worth of useful occupations.
- Celebrate the opportunities that Rotarians have to serve society through their occupations.
Vocational Directors have the immediate goal to encourage Rotarians to believe they have a link between the idealism of Rotary and the operation of their profession or trade.
A development of this personal goal is to demonstrate this link to the wider community.
Here are a few avenues to consider being part of your Vocational Service program.
- Speakers on topics from the business world.
- Visiting workplaces.
- Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.
- Technical seminars.
- Pride of Workmanship Award.
- Careers Expo.
- Conoco-Phillips Science Experience.
- Job interview.
- Police Officer of the Year Award.
- Guest speakers on industrial relations.
- Road Safety programs.
- Men's Shed.
- Young Achievers Australia.
- Pride in business awards
There are over 30,000 Rotarians in Australia and their ethical behaviours can impact on the population at large.
- Honesty needs to be done and seen to be done.
- Courtesy is a recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations.
- Justice is about being treated fairly and respectfully.
- Understanding in a multicultural population such as in Australia is at the core of living in harmony.
