Vocational Service for granted

for Rotary activities; it is the Rotarian in us that
affects how we act in our vocation.

others"

The Four Way Test
"Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?"
One of the most widely printed and quoted statements of
business ethics in the world is the Rotary Four-Way Test,
created by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor in 1932

recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the
dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to
serve society;
THIRD: The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s
personal, business, and community life;
FOURTH: The advancement of international understanding, goodwill,
and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional
