The Zonta Code
To pledge myself to uphold and practice the ideals of Zonta.
To honor my work and consider it an opportunity for service.
To increase the measurement of that service by consistent self-improvement of the legal, political
economic and professional status of women.
To work for the advancement of understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world of
fellowship of executives in business and the professions united in the Zonta ideals of service
To keep ever before me the best of all creeds.
"Whatsoever ye would that men should do undo you, do even so unto them"

Zonta Club of Marquette Area, is one of over 1,200 clubs of Zonta International, a worldwide service organization. Founded in 1919 in Buffalo, New York, Zonta takes its name from the Lakota Sioux Indian word meaning "honest and trustworthy." Zontians volunteer their time, talents and energy to local and international service projects that are designed to advance the status of women.

Zonta gives you the chance to be a part of something much larger than yourself...
Zonta allows you to give of yourself to others, to actively participate in the selection of service projects to help your community, and to improve the legal, political, economic, educational, health and professional status of women worldwide.
