Membership of the Club



Membership of the Lions Club of Warrandyte is by invitation to persons of good character and standing in the community. It is club policy that prospective new members are required to attend at least four club meetings within a reasonable period of time and if an invitation is extended, can be inducted on the fifth.

Membership is not without modest cost and annual dues are charged to maintain membership status. Above all is a commitment to always observe the Lions Clubs Objects and the Lions Clubs Code of Ethics and to attend club meetings and functions regularly.

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 bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to
my nation, my state and my community, and to give
my unswerving loyalty in word, act and deed.
To give them freely of my time, labour 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.
