As a Rotarian engaged in a business or profession, I am expected to:

1) consider my vocation to be another opportunity to serve;

2) be faithful to the letter and to the spirit of the ethical codes of my vocation, to the laws of my country, and to the moral standards of my community;

3) do all in my power to dignify my vocation and to promote the highest ethical standards in my chosen vocation;

4) be fair to my employer, employees, associates, competitors, customers, the public, and all those with whom I have a business or professional relationship;

5) recognize the honor and respect due to all occupations which are useful to society;

6) offer my vocational talents: to provide opportunities for young people, to work for the relief of the special needs of others, and to improve the quality of life in my community;

7) adhere to honesty in my advertising and in all representations to the public concerning my business or profession;

8) neither seek from nor grant to a fellow Rotarian a privilege or advantage not normally accorded others in a business or professional relationship.
