Title: Protocol & Etiquette Basics Everyone Should Know Etiquette


1
Protocol Etiquette
  • Basics Everyone Should Know

2
Etiquette
  • What is it?
  • Etiquette is simply the basics of kindness and
    politeness
  • Good Manners
  • Consideration of Others
  • Thoughtfulness
  • General Courtesy
  • When in doubt, do the kindest thing possible

3
Protocol
  • Protocol A code of diplomatic or military
    etiquette or precedence.
  • More simply put - it is understanding the
    established official, diplomatic code of ethics
    or behavior.
  • The term Service Etiquette or Military Etiquette
    is interchangeable with the term Protocol.

4
FLAG ETIQUETTE
  • Active Duty Stand and salute.
  • Spouses Place your hand over your heart as the
    American Flag passes you
  • Hold it there until the last note of the National
    Anthem is played or sung
  • Be the example for those
  • around you- they may not
  • be aware of the proper
  • way to show respect for
  • our flag
  • Stand for the flag or anthem
  • of other nations as well

5
Respect for Rank or Position
  • At Ceremonies and some formal programs, Flag
    Officers (Admirals and often Captains as well as
    guests of honor may be announced before they
    enter after everyone else is seated. A band may
    play Ruffles and Flourishes for Flag Officers.
  • At dinner functions, military may seat their
    spouse but will stand by their chair. Once the
    ranking officer at the table arrives, they wait
    for a cue to be seated.
  • At a Ceremony, service members will be called to
    Attention to Orders or Attention to Award.
    Service members will stand, civilians remain
    seated unless asked to stand.

6
Introductions
  • Always greet or speak to the Senior or elder
    person first. Introduce using rank or title.
    Use Mr. or Mrs. for spouses unless invited to use
    first names.
  • Rule of thumb is to introduce Junior to Senior,
    Non-Official to Official, colleague to customer
    and younger to elder. Introduce children before
    adults.
  • Be prepared and comfortable introducing yourself.
    Our spouses are often occupied behind the scenes
    or may be participating in the event.
  • Have confidence when introducing yourself.
  • It is okay to tell someone It is nice to see
    you again, I am so sorry I cannot recall your
    name.

7
Invitations
  • ALWAYS respond or RSVP within 48 hours of
    receiving an invitation. (This means to simply
    contact the host and inform him/her if you will
    be attending or not.) The Host needs to know how
    many they are planning for.
  • NEVER arrive early, bring uninvited guests, or
    children (unless specifically invited).
  • KNOW who the Host and Hostess are and their
    relationship to your spouse as well as what type
    of event you are invited to.
  • If you have a dietary restriction or allergy
    inquire and inform the Hostess when you accept
    expressing the simplest of solutions.

8
Place Settings
bread
drink
  • At most functions tables are often preset with
    many items. The BASIC LAYOUT is usually the same
    and may be very crowded.
  • In addition you may find coffee cups, cream
    sugar, salt pepper, pitchers of water iced
    tea, etc
  • Your bread plate is always on the left, drinks on
    the right.

9
Expressing Thanks
  • A hand written Thank You note is a MUST after
    attending a party or gathering in some ones home.
    An email will NOT do.
  • Write a thank you within 24 hours while memory of
    the event is fresh.
  • Mention something specific, so they know you
    enjoyed yourself.
  • NEVER pre write a thank you and leave it for the
    hostess to find.

  • Your choice of outfit should match the level of
    formality of the Uniform your spouse will wear or
    the role they have at the event.
  • To Dress to the Uniform is to align what you
    wear to the importance of the event and the level
    of formality of the uniform your spouse will
