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 of profit as my just due,
but to accept no profit or success at the price
of my own 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 a rises as to the right or ethics
of my position or action towards my fellow men, 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 obligations as a citizen
to my nation, my state and my community,
and to give to them my unswerving
loyalty in word, act and deed. To give them
freely of my time, labor and means.
TO AID my fellow men by giving my sympathy to
those in distress, my aid to the weak,
and my substance to the needy.
TO BE CAREFUL with my criticisms and liberal with
my praise; to build up and not destroy.
TO CREATE and foster a spirit of understanding
among the peoples of the world.
TO PROMOTE the principles of good government and
TO TAKE an active interest in the civic, cultural,
social, and moral welfare of the community.
TO UNITE the clubs in the bonds of friendship, good
fellowship and mutual understanding.
TO PROVIDE a forum for the open discussion of all
matters of public interest, provided, however, that
partisan politics and sectarian religion shall not be
debated by club members..
TO ENCOURAGE service-minded people to serve their
community without personal financial reward, and to
encourage efficiency and promote high ethical
standards in commerce, industry, professions, public
works and private endeavors..
