It should be clearly understood that classifications are determined by activities or services to society rather than by the position held by a particular individual. In other words, if a person is the president of a bank, he or she is not classified as "bank president" but under the classification "banking." The classification principle is a necessary concept in assuring that each Rotary club represents a cross section of the business and professional service of the community.
