Four Way Test :

Every member of Rotary should know the  Four Way Test that Rotary states of the things we think, say or do...

Is it the Truth?

Is it Fair to all concerned?

Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?

 Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?

What do all those acronyms mean ? 

One of the first things which confuses visitors and new members about Rotary is the regular use of acronyms to address people. Although they may seem daunting to the inexperienced, they are really quite simple. Some of the most commonly used acronyms (and their meanings) are:
