Rotarian Code of Conduct

Here is the updated Rotarian Code of Conduct; the last aspect has been included since Jan 2019.


As a Rotarian, I will:

  • Act with integrity and high ethical standards in my personal and professional life
  • Deal fairly with others and treat them and their occupations with respect
  • Use my professional skills through Rotary to:  mentor young people, help those with special needs, and improve people’s quality of life in my community and in the world
  • Avoid behaviour that reflects adversely on Rotary or other Rotarians.
  • Help maintain a harassment-free environment in Rotary meetings, events, and activities, report any suspected harassment, and help ensure non-retaliation to those individuals that report harassment (January 2019 Mtg., Bd. Dec. 119).

    I am a proud Rotarian and wear Rotary pins wherever I go as it shape my personality. During my visits abroad, I exchange our club flags and invite the hosts to my place, thus extending our hospitality. In this way, I also get help from the Rotary Foundation to implement community projects.

      When I am on any Rotary project or activity, I always have the Rotary pin on me as my identity. Every member should feel proud to be a Rotarian and work with all transparency, dignity and politeness. The clubs should be managed with utmost integrity and transparency for the common good. If possible, all clubs in a locality can join hands to take up a notable project to showcase the focus areas of Rotary International.

      Rotary District Grants and Global Grants are a big source to offer the best in need of community around or internationally. The district grant and global grant projects build public image for Rotary and also help us to sustain membership growth. Further, they keep the members busy as they survey the needs of their communities and taking up stewardship of funds of donors and TRF.

      A harassment-free environment is a long-awaited welcome inclusion. Rotarians should consider inculcating and propagating the codes to achieve significant improvement in interpersonal relationship within the community.

      This is a commitment that every Rotarian makes when joining Rotary.We all should remind ourselves of this commitment. This commitment is timely and useful in today’s world. Suggest that Rotarians say the Rotarian Code of Conduct at every Rotary meeting. Let us Rotarians live by the Rotarian Code of Conduct and lead by our example.
