Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.

Dave RobinsonSince 1999, the Rotary Club of Nevada City has partnered with the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce to present the Business Person of the Year Award. This honor recognizes a local businessperson for operating their business according to the characteristics of Rotary’s Four Way Test. By encouraging local businesses to act in an ethical and community-conscience way, the ideals of Rotary are promoted in the community. January 2020, Treats was recognized as the Business Person of the Year for 2019.

For the first and third Thursday of each month, Nevada City Rotary holds a Merchant Mixer Social at 5:30PM.  We showcase a local business owner who gives a presentation. Club business is minimized to allow significant time for members to network and brainstorm as well as preserve time for the Merchant Showcase presentation.
