1What is the four way test ?2013 District 7910 Assembly

2One of the most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics in the world is the Rotary 4-Way Test. It was created by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor in 1932 when he was asked to take charge of a company facing bankruptcy. Taylor looked for a way to save the struggling company mired in depression-caused financial difficulties. He drew up a 24-word code of ethics for all employees to follow in their business and professional lives. The 4-Way Test 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.Herb Taylor became president of Rotary International in 1954 - 1955. The 4-Way Test was adopted by Rotary in 1943. It has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of different ways. Here it is in English:Of the things we think, say or do:1. Is it the Truth?2. Is it Fair to all concerned?3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?What is the four way test?Of the things we think, say or do:1. Is it the Truth?2. Is it fair to all Concerned?3.

3What is/are the Rotary Mottos?2013 District 7910 Assembly

4The enthusiasm with which Rotarians embraced the ideal of service is evidenced by Rotarys principal motto, Service Above Self and its other official precept, He Profits Most Who Serves Best. The roots of both of these adages, adopted as official mottos at the 1950 RI Convention, can be traced back to the first decade of Rotarys existence, when he profits most who serves his fellows best and Service not self were both put forth as slogans. In 1989, the RI Council on Legislation designated Service above Self as the principal motto.What is/are the Rotary Mottos?Service above Self and He Profits Most Who Serves Best were both adopted as officialmottoes at the 1950 RI Convention. However the1989 Council on Legislation adopted the principalmotto:

11ZonesEach Zone consists of a series of Districts. There are currently 531 Districts in 34 Rotary International Zones. The size of a zone is regulated to keep them relatively equal. The key factor is not the number of Districts (the number of districts in any given zone presently varies from 7 to 33), or the number of clubs (there are currently 33,995 clubs), but rather the number of Rotarians in each Zone (there are currently 1,227,563 Rotarians). The zones currently range from 31,000 to 38,000 Rotarians per zone. The perimeter of a given zone is somewhat fluid, with Rotary International making adjustments from time-to-time to keep the number of Rotarians in a given zone somewhat equal.Zone 24 currently has 16 Districts (5010, 5040, 5050, 5060, 5360, 5370, 5550, 6330, 7010, 7040, 7070, 7080, 7090, 7790, 7810, 7820). There are currently 33,246 Rotarians in our zone which comprises approximately 2.7% of all the Rotarians in the world.Zone 32 currently has 21 Districts (7210, 7230, 7250, 7260, 7390, 7410, 7430, 7450, 7470, 7490, 7500, 7510, 7640, 7780, 7850, 7870, 7890, 7910, 7930, 7950, 7980).
