LIONS 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.
WHENEVER a doubt arises 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 service performed by one to another, but
that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in
which it is given.
