BECOMING A LION

Membership of the Lions Club of Warrandyte is by nomination (either by yourself or another), 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.

Should you wish to make further enquiries, send an email to Membership Chairperson

LIONS CLUBS OBJECTIVES

 

  • TO CREATE and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world.

  • TO PROMOTE the principles of good government and good citizenship.

  • TO FUND and otherwise serve the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community.

  • TO ASSIST financially, culturally, socially and morally the handicapped, disadvantaged and infirm of the community both directly and also indirectly.

  • 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 endeavours.

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.

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE SOMETHING YOU WOULD BE LIKE TO BE A PART OF?
