The Four Way Test: How it Began
In the early 1930s Herbert J. Taylor set out to save the Club Aluminum Products distribution company from bankruptcy. He believed himself to be the only person in the company with 250 employees who had hope. His recovery plan started with changing the ethical climate of the company. He explained: The first job was to set policies for the company that would reflect the high ethics and morals God would want in any business. If the people who worked for Club Aluminum were to think right, I knew they would do right. What we needed was a simple, easily remembered guide to right conduct - a sort of ethical yardstick- which all of us in the company could memorize and apply to what we thought, said and did. I searched through many books for the answer to our need, but the right phrases eluded me, so I did what I often do when I have a problem I can't answer myself: I turn to the One who has all the answers. I leaned over my desk, rested my head in my hands and prayed. After a few moments, I looked up and reached for a white paper card. Then I wrote down the twenty-four words that had come to me. I called it "The Four-Way Test" of the things we think, say or do.
Adoption Of The Test By Rotary In the 1940s, when Taylor was an international director of Rotary, he offered the Four-Way Test to the organization, and it was adopted by Rotary for its internal and promotional use. Never changed, the twenty four word test remains today a central part of the permanent Rotary structure throughout the world, and is held as the standard by which all behavior should be measured. The test has been promoted around the world and is used in myriad forms to encourage personal and business ethical practices. Taylor gave Rotary International the right to use the test in the 1940s and the copyright in 1954.

Good Morning fellow Sunupians!
I hope that your week has gone well. I still can’t believe this unseasonable weather! Hopefully we get some type of precipitation soon!
I thought that our mid-year reports last week went well. Thank you to the Directors who reported. Susan will discuss communications this week and Greg and Todd will do their part in two weeks (1.31). I hope that it was helpful to all members to take a look at how well we welcome visitors and guests and to back at our accomplishments this year as we prepare as we go into the next 5-6 months.
This week my wife and I are travelling to a trade show so Neal, our suave president elect will be taking the meeting reins this Wednesday as we won’t be back until the afternoon. It will be your first highlight of what to anticipate for next year.
The Board of Directors has finished up and approved the By-Laws revisions, so watch for an email to all members with the Constitution and By-laws revisions. Per our rules, there will be a 10 day review/comment period after which if there are no objections, they will be in effect with your approval. We hope that the revisions meet your expectations.
I look forward to seeing you all again in two weeks.
Peace friends,
