Spanning five generations, this family business maintains and evolves the standards of American etiquette that Emily Post established with her seminal book Etiquette in 1922. Though times and specific manners have changed, the Post's maintain that the principles of good etiquette remain constant. Above all, manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others.
Consideration, respect, and honesty are more important than knowing which fork to use. It’s the underlying sincerity and good intentions of our actions that matter most.
From a primary office in Burlington, Vermont, The Emily Post Institute maintains a 25 book collection; columns in Good Housekeeping, Women's Running Magazine, and on the popular everything-home-related site Houzz; conducts business etiquette seminars and trainings both in the United States and around the world; and partners with businesses and non-profit organizations to bring etiquette and manners to a wide audience. The company has a Q&A podcast, Awesome Etiquette with American Public Media, hosted by Lizzie Post and Daniel Post Senning. There are currently two generations and 3 direct descendants and their immediate family involved with The Emily Post Institute.
