Service Above Self
On joining the Rotary movement a Rotarian commits to encourage and foster:
FIRST - The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service.
SECOND - High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying by each Rotarian of their occupation as an opportunity to serve society.
THIRD - The application of the ideal of service by every Rotarian to their personal, business and community life.
FOURTH - The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
