PROTOCOL GUIDE - PART 1:

Forms of Address

For Members of the

Government Administration 

 

This document, which should be read in association with Part 2, outlines the correct forms of address to be used in composing text-based communications, in text-based salutations, in direct conversation and in formal introductions, for Members of the Imperial Thracian Government Administration.

In Imperial diplomatic and other public circles, “Sir” is generally considered an acceptable alternative to the formal mode of address in both written and spoken greetings, except for persons of Noble Rank. The term “Madam” is the preferred alternative for female addressees who are not of Noble Rank.

Members of the Government Administration should always be addressed initially by their official title when communications are conducted within the context of official business. Members of the Government Administration who are also members of the Nobility may secondarily be addressed according to their Noble Title. Such persons are also entitled to use the recognized pre- and post-nominals for any Thracian Noble Title or Imperial Honour which they hold, in text-based communications, in order of precedence.
