The Four Way Test

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Lunch begins at noon - Meeting begins at 12:30 p.m.

Four Way Test

The Four Way Test was written by Herbert Taylor during a business crisis in 1932.  Herbert Taylor was the president of the Rotary Club of Chicago 1939-40.  He was also the President of Rotary International 1954-55.   In January 1943 the Four Way Test was adopted by Rotary International.   For Rotarians, the  test is the foundation for all action.


 The FOUR-WAY TEST of the things we think, say or do:
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? 

The "Four Way Test" will be the focus of the October 30th meeting for the South Jacksonville Rotary Club.
