Rotarians practice a 4-Way Test that measures words and actions by their truthfulness, fairness, goodwill, and benefit to all. Encouraging high ethical standards in one’s profession and respect for all worthy vocations has been a guiding principle of Rotary from its earliest days.
Every Rotary club and district hosts parties and activities that deepen the connection among members while providing a respite from one’s professional life. Assemblies, conventions, conferences and social events provide entertainment as well as Rotary information, education, and service.
