2016 NJVA WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5th 3-8PM
@ PINES MANOR IN EDISON, nj
A UNIQUE EVENT!
This unique event brings together Rotary leadership, Rotarians and guests from across the five Districts of New Jersey to celebrate our vocational service and commitment to high ethical standards. RI President T.A. Warren (1945-46) said, “The only unique feature of Rotary is Vocational Service. Everything else we do is repeated by every other recognized service organization.” At the Assembly, an outstanding Rotarian, duly nominated and chose from each district, will be individually recognized and honored for exemplifying Vocational Service and for demonstrating high ethical standards through his and her business or profession. New Jersey is the only state in the Rotary world to sponsor a Vocational Assembly in which every club in the state participates.
