Happy New Year!
This month is vocational service month at Rotary. There are many great ideas from other clubs and districts across the world, so I thought I would share a few of them that I found here.  
  1. Present a vocational award to someone in the community who has exemplified outstanding professional achievement and high ethical standards. Promote the presentation in the community.
  2. Help young people prepare for their careers by sponsoring a character-building project, virtual career day, or virtual mentorship program.
  3. Support professional development in the community by sponsoring a professional networking event or workshop, or start a career counseling program to help unemployed or underemployed adults compete in the job market.
  4. Have club members volunteer their vocational skills on a community or international service project. 
I hope these ideas give you some inspiration and thoughts on serving our community in January and throughout the year.

As I wrap up, I want to continue virtual club visits for the remainder of the Rotary year, and I will be reaching out to the clubs that I have not been able to meet with yet. I look forward to my visit with Midtown and Midwest City in the coming weeks.
