The Object of Rotary is a philosophical statement of Rotary’s purpose and the responsibilities
of Rotarians. The concept of vocational service is rooted in the Second Object, which calls on
Rotarians to “encourage and foster”:
 
• High ethical standards in business and professions
 
• The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations
 
• The dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society
 
As a Rotarian, how can you put these ideals into action? Consider these suggestions:
 
• Talk about your vocation in your club, and take time to learn about fellow members’ vocations.
 
• Use your professional skills to serve a community.
 
• Practice your profession with integrity, and inspire others to behave ethically through your own words and actions.
 
• Help a young person achieve his or her career aspirations.
 
• Guide and encourage others in their professional development.
 
If you do any of these things, you are performing vocational service. And if vocational service motivates and energizes you, then you’re in the right place, because vocational service is the very essence of Rotary. It is what sets Rotary apart from other service organizations.

Five Avenues of Service 

The term “Five Avenues of Service” refers to the five elements of the Object of Rotary: Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service, International Service and New Generations Service. 

Although the Avenues of Service are not found in any formal part of the constitutional documents of Rotary, many Rotarians use this concept to describe the primary areas of Rotary activity. 

Club Service involves all of the necessary activities Rotarians perform to make their club function successfully. 

Vocational Service describes the opportunity each Rotarian has to represent the dignity and utility of one’s vocation to the other members of the club, as well as the responsibility of the club to undertake projects related to such areas as career planning, vocational training, and the promotion of high ethical standards in the workplace.

Community Service pertains to those activities that Rotarians undertake to improve the quality of life in their community. It frequently involves assistance to youth, the aged, the disabled, and others who look to Rotary as a source of hope for a better life. 

International Service, describes the many programs and activities that Rotarians undertake to advance international understanding, goodwill, and peace. International service projects are designed to meet humanitarian needs of people in many lands. When a Rotarian understands and travels down the four Avenues of Service, the Object of Rotary takes on even greater meaning. 

New Generations Service recognizes the importance of empowering youth and young professionals through leadership development programs such as Rotaract, Interact, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange.

 

 

Clubs reap benefits from flexibility options

2019-20 Rotary International President Mark Daniel Maloney is urging leaders to grow Rotary by creating new Rotary and Rotaract clubs that take advantage of innovative membership models.

In his speech to incoming leaders at the annual training event in San Diego, California, USA, Monday, Maloney said “The first emphasis is to grow Rotary — to grow our service, to grow the impact of our projects, but most importantly, to grow our membership so that we can achieve more."

Here are some of the ways clubs are staying relevant in their communities. 

  1. FLEXIBLE MEETINGS

    Rotary Club of Singapore East, Singapore)

    The Rotary Club of Singapore East replaced two of its monthly meetings with less formal gatherings focusing on service projects and fellowship. 

    These new meetings give Rotaractors and family members the chance to get involved while keeping costs down for the club’s younger members. 

     

  2. REDUCED DUES

    (Rotary Club of Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C., USA)

    Quentin Wodon, president of the club, helped double its membership in six months by adopting a number of changes. One involved adding two new membership categories: one for young professionals, 35 and under, at half the regular dues, and one for spouses or partners, at one-third the cost.

    The club grew from 18 to 36 members and has since reduced its regular dues as well, says Wodon, author of the Rotarian Economist blog.

     

  3. CORPORATE MEMBERSHIP

    (Rotary Club of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

    Corporate memberships give busy executives the chance to get involved in club projects and activities without committing to regular weekly meetings. The club has 17 corporate members, from six businesses, who take turns attending the club’s meetings.
