Lions Code of Ethics

To show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service

To seek success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part

To remember that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another’s; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself

Whenever a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself

To hold friendship as an end and not a means; to hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one to another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given

Always to bear in mind my obligation as a citizen to my nation, my state and my community, and to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act, and deed; to give freely of my time, labor, and means

To aid others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak and my substance to the needy

To be careful with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy
