Protocol - Why is it important?

Dignity is an essential aspect of Rotary.  The world judges Rotary by its members and it is important to ensure that dignity is always maintained in the club and in particular, that club meetings are conducted with decorum.  This does not mean that you cannot also have fun - dignity and fun are not mutually exclusive!  Following proper procedures and protocol is not only easy, it is the only right way to do things.
