Pledge/ Inspiration


When asked to give the pledge and inspiration by the President, walk to the front of the room.

Say the pledge before the inspiration. If a non-U.S. citizen is in the role, a member who is a U.S. citizen will lead the pledge and the non-U.S. citizen will proceed to give the inspiration.

Begin the pledge by saying “Please rise. If you are a U.S. citizen, please place your right hand over your heart, and say the pledge with me.”


Be brief, 1-2 minutes

This is a special thought to put everyone in a positive frame of mind. The inspiration can be a short personal thought, a quote, or a brief story.
