Why do we need Protocol?
The DAR National Handbook, Chapter XIII, tells us what Protocol is all about:
“Protocol may be defined as the ceremonial forms and courtesies that are established as proper and correct, or as the proper etiquette for recognizing and honoring those in positions of leadership. The fundamental principles of protocol are dictated by ethics, courtesy, good manners, and common sense.”
