Action requested: nominate one qualified Rotarian from our district for the Vocational Service Leadership Award
Due Date: 24 October 2014
We strongly encourage everyone to participate in Rotary’s recognition programs, which are designed to honor Rotary’s most dedicated leaders who serve their communities with compassion and perseverance. Exemplary Rotarians lead by example!
The Vocational Service Leadership Award recognizes Rotarians who have made a significant impact in advancing vocational service, but do not hold district or international leadership positions. This award is a wonderful opportunity for you to honor a Rotarian in your district who is actively committed to vocational service and may otherwise go unrecognized.
Please note that only one Rotarian per district may receive the Vocational Service Leadership Award each year and Rotarians may only receive this award once. A detailed explanation of the award criteria can be found in the nomination form, available for download at www.rotary.org/awards. Any active Rotarian in good standing who meets the award criteria is eligible to receive this award, except for current, incoming and past district governors, and current, incoming and past RI directors.
Completed nomination forms must arrive to the District Awards Chair by October 24. Eligible nominations submitted by the deadline will be processed and the District Governor will receive a certificate for your nominee in January 2015. Late submissions will not be accepted. Please submit your completed nomination via e-mail to Fred Carriere.

The Rotary Foundation recognizes couples or individuals who have made commitments in their estate plans totaling US$10,000 or more. Donors may elect to receive an engraved crystal recognition piece and a pin commemorating the commitment at each new recognition level. A gift of at least $10,000 in your name to The Rotary Foundation creates a legacy of your generosity and compassion as you are helping many people live better lives around the world. We have 42 Rotary Foundation Bequest Society Members in our District.
