Section 6 

Risk Questions 

Zontians are individuals who are working together to change the lives of women and are known for being honest and trustworthy. The ones elected for the top leadership positions hold and handle funds in trust for our members and our projects. 

As with many other not for profit organizations, our success relies in the trust of our stakeholders. This trust has to be continuously maintained by the commitment of all members, but particularly at leadership positions, with the highest ethical principles. If only one donor or stakeholder loses confidence in Zonta, it would be one too many. If Zonta’s reputation is damaged, it will be very difficult to repair. 

To contribute to the accountability and transparency of our future top leaders, please answer the following questions: 

1. Have you during the last 5 years been convicted or found guilty by a Court of any offense in any country (excluding parking or motoring offences)? Choose an item: ___Yes ___No 

If Yes please explain. Click here to enter text. 

2. Have you during the last 5 years been put on probation in a legal sense or is there any action pending against you? Choose an item: ___Yes ___No 

If Yes please explain. Click here to enter text. 

3. Have you ever been denied entry into the United States of America? 

Choose an item: ___Yes ___No 

If Yes please explain. Click here to enter text. Page 4 of 5
