January is Vocational Service Month on the Rotary International Calendar. The key element of vocational service is that Rotarians encourage and foster:
  • Adherence to and promotion of the highest ethical standards in all occupations, including fair treatment of employers, employees, associates, competitors, and the public.
  • Recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations.
  • Contribution of your vocational talents to solving the problems of society and meeting the needs of the community.
Some suggestions for Vocational Service month, from Rotary International Guiding Principles
