Classification principle By assigning each member a classification

based on his or her business or profession, this system

ensures that the club's membership reflects the business and

professional composition of its community. The number of

members holding a particular classification is limited according

to the size of the club. The goal is professional diversity,

which enlivens the club's social atmosphere and provides a rich

resource of occupational expertise to carry out service projects

and provide club leadership.

Avenues of Service Based on the Object of Rotary, the

Avenues of Service are Rotary's philosophical cornerstone and

the foundation on which club activity is based:

v Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and

ensuring the effective functioning of the club.

v Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve

others through their vocations and to practice high

ethical standards.

v Community Service covers the projects and activities the

club undertakes to improve life in its community.

v International Service encompasses actions taken to

expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe and

to promote world understanding and peace.
