Vocational Service
 

2016 Corporate 4-Way Test Award Recipient CBRE

 

This committee stimulates members to apply the ideal of service in pursuit of their vocations and to develop projects that will allow members to recognize the worthiness to society of all occupations and to use their vocational talents in helping solve problems in society. The committee is also dedicated to encouraging “Rotarians Doing Business with Rotarians” through the Rotary Works! program.

 

Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
