Vocational Service

This area of service promotes high ethical standards in business and professions, recognizes the worthiness of all useful occupations and fosters the ideal of service in the pursuit of all vocations. Vocational Service involves developing projects that help Rotary members contribute their skills to meet the needs of the community, both local and worldwide.

Rotarians are expected to conduct themselves and their workplace according to the Four-Way Test which is an integral part of Rotary’s mission statement. This Rotary year has the theme Rotary Serving Humanity so this should be evident in all our vocational activities.
Our committee this year has begun planning for a Pride of Workmanship Award night where we will honour those brought to our attention who have been high achievers in their area of work. Later we will plan a special evening for recognition of the many Volunteers who keep our community humming.
Each month one Rotarian will receive a Rotarian of the Month Award, recognition of outstanding service beyond self. Also we hope to initiate a one minute Vocational Education segment at each meeting so members old and new can learn more about each other.
Vocational Visits have been planned to two of our Rotarian’s workplaces to date, and also a November visit to sample the students’ food at TAFE Cartwright’s Restaurant, Mooloolaba.
Watch this space as our year progresses!
