Ethics and accountability

Rotary has a long history of great work across the world. The material in this resource will help you to follow some simple guidelines when making decisions, conducting meetings and communicating with members and the community. 

5. Good manners in Rotary

As John G. Thorne, Rotary International Past Directer says '...Without good manners, society would be a mess. Although Rotary is not a business, mostly we should do well by being 'business-like' and effective in the way we conduct our meetings and treat other people. Indeed, there can be personal advantages when we recognise good good manners, etiquette or appropriate protocols in the right place or the right time." 

Good manners in Rotary by John G. Thorne, Rotary International Past Director, is available online for a cost of $2.21 for a Kindle edition. This resource outlines many of the issues we have discussed in this topic on Governance. This publication may be of use to you and your club as a reference.
