Dear Fellow Rotarians,
 
First Lady Amanda and I would like to wish you and your family a happy and healthy New Year! Let us continue to “Serve to Change Lives” with impactful and sustainable projects and service in local communities and around the World!
 
January is Vocational Service month, which can help us empower others by using our unique skills and expertise to address community needs. Your work experience, skills and knowledge in your field is valued and recognized during this month. Working together with our various professions makes us a strong team to better the lives in our communities and around the World. Rotary welcomes members from all professions.
 
This month also focuses on helping others to acquire or refine skills to advance their professional careers. Discussions on Vocational Service can lead to projects that not only develop ethical consciousness of Rotarians but also talents within the communities. 
 
Clubs can promote Vocational Service by:
  • Asking members in the Club to do mini classification talks during Club meetings
  • Present a Vocational Award to someone in the community who has exemplified outstanding professional achievement while maintaining high ethical standards   
  • Practice your profession with integrity and inspire others to behave ethically through your words and actions
  • Work with local businesses to create mentorship and/or internship opportunities to help young people achieve their career goals
 
As we navigate the Covid-19 Pandemic, continue to keep yourselves and families safe.
 
Yours in Rotary Service,
Louis Wever
District Governor 2021-2022 
District 7020
