These Guidelines are Born of Necessity

We fully realize that some of these guidelines may, at first glance, be considered rather harsh to some people.  We wish it to be known that it is not our intention to be militant or overbearing in our approach to operating this Membership Society.

 

Our first defense has been that we now do our level best to screen new members thoroughly, both for our protection, and yours.  We have also updated these guidelines and make them readily available here for all the Royal Society of Saint George- California Branch members to keep the peace, and to inform all would-be troublemakers that we do not tolerate dishonest, insensitive, or disruptive behavior. Considering this, we feel that it is our right, and our responsibility to guard our Good name, our reputation and our membership against such actions, perpetrated by people of questionable integrity.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  These guidelines are subject to change at any time to reflect the growing issues within our Royal Society of Saint George- California Branch and we make a definite point of announcing such changes as they are made. However, the full responsibility of staying informed, updated, and aware of changes lies with each Community member.

 

Ignorance of these guidelines is not a legitimate excuse for misconduct.
