Dear Round Table friends
In the US there are currently two Round Table clubs: RT 1 in New York City and RT 6 in Washington DC and even though some might say that´s not a large number we want to concentrate on our quality while continuing our efforts to create more clubs.
Round Table 6 in Washington is on its way up in membership and their newly elected President Nick Elhini is working hard to increase the number of members. Round Table 1 in New York has already grown to a good number with 25 active tablers from a merely 5-6 only few years ago. They also have a number of prospects attending meetings. And I think I can safely say that RT 1 in New York is the world’s most diverse RT club with members of 9 nationalities from 3 continents … and I urge you to let me know if you know of a more diverse RT club and I will stand corrected.
My job as President of RT USA is to assist and support our clubs Presidents in any way possible whether it´s growing membership, increasing awareness of Round Table and exploring the possibilities of chartering another Round Table club in New York and Boston.
A major event in the coming year is the 2013 AGM which will also be the 30th Anniversary of Round Table 1 New York – and save the date for a spectacular weekend in New York City – April 19th – 21st 2013 and note that registrations will open on June 20th. This will be a great International event and you don´t want to miss it.
If you or someone you know is living or moving to New York or Washington DC and they want to join or transfer to RT 1 or RT 6 we would love to hear from you. And if you are a RT member from another country travelling to New York or Washington we would also love to hear from you and you are of course welcome to attend our meetings as a guest. Just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I´ll get you in touch with either Nick from RT 6 or Mesut Celebi President of RT 1 New York.
Yours in Table
President Round Table USA 2012 - 2013
