Rotary's tradition for starting a meeting is to recite the "4 Way Test"
   Of the things we Think, Say and DO
                Is it
  1.  The Truth?
  2. Fair to all Concerned?
  3. Will it Build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
  4. Is it Beneficial to All Concerned?
How to Use the 4 Way Test
From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with promoting high ethical standards in their professional lives.  One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The 4-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.  This 24-word code of ethics for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the company is credited to this simple philosophy.  Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The 4-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways.


As a Rotarian, I will:

1.  Act with integrity and high ethical standards in my personal and professional life

2.  Deal fairly with others and treat them and their occupations with respect

3.   Use my professional skills through Rotary to mentor young people, help those with  special needs, and improve people’s quality of life in my community and in the world

4.  Avoid behavior that reflects adversely on Rotary or other Rotarians

Rotary District 5960 has created a video on using the 4 Way Test in club meetings and in your business.  Often the 4 Way Test is not understood. Listen to the following video to learn how you can use this very important part of Rotary in your business.  Click Here
