Best wishes for a successful year 2019

The Rotary month of January is celebrated as “Vocational Service Month”.

Vocational Service is one of Rotary’s Avenues of Service. For that, Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to aspire to high ethical standards in their occupation, to recognize the worthiness of all useful occupations, and to contribute their vocational talents to the problems and needs of society.

2064 Rotarians (as on 30 December 2018), 83 clubs and district 2452 should implement the following strategies in their support of Vocational Service:

  • Strengthen the emphasis on vocation and classification in new member recruitment and induction.
  • Identify means of emphasizing vocation in club activities.
  • Create a stronger emphasis on business networking with integrity in Rotary at the club and district level.
  • Focus more attention on business networking with integrity as a means of attracting and mentoring the new generation.
  • Emphasize the connection between the Four Way Test and the Rotary Code of Conduct and their importance to the core values of Rotary.

The Clubs’ visits (80 out of 83 Rotary Clubs, remaining RCs Tyre Europa, Chtaura Bekaa gate, Lebanon and Famagusta Cavo Greco, Cyprus) over the past six months have reconfirmed that vocational service is the core of our organization’s works where we’ve been invited then we decided to join. In fact, various professions, as in Rotary, may be considered useless, unless they would be better valued; where we have to invest in these professions in order to serve their communities through the talent, qualities and skills acquired and developed as we practice our professions, in our business and in communities.

Among our fellow colleagues I’ve met dedicated teachers who are actively involved in preventing school abandonment and stimulating excellence, doctors who are willing to initiate club projects to ensure free medical care for the poor and hurting, artists willing to support humanitarian causes through their art, in addition to businessmen and community leaders who are inspired by the 4-Way Test and the Rotary core values.

This is an involvement sample through which Rotary stands out as a competent and capable force which successfully negotiates a wide range of challenges.

Thank you all for the generosity and the humility that you provide through your profession, your vocation, your community involvement making life better and giving hope to those who come into our reach and being the inspiration. (Please refer to PP Simon Karam topic).

I would like to share with you the sheet titled “Vocational Service ideas".
