The World Membership Committee (WMC) is a small working group assisting the RTI Officer responsible for extension i.e. the RTI Vice President. The purpose of the WMC is to support the growth and rejuvenation on Round Table worldwide.
The aims of the WMC workgroup are:
• To support the growth and rejuvenation of existing associations
• To support struggling associations
• To support the establishment of new associations
The workgroup consists of six members, representatives from each region or sub region. The representatives are being replaced every two years. The communication from the WMC towards the associations goes through the RTI Vice President. In 2016-2017 the workgroup consists of the following associations:
EMA Region: RT Sweden, RT Belgium
AMI Region: AMI Chairman (Irshad Paurobally), AMI Fellow (John Thorsson)
ASPA Region: RT Netherlands
Each year the WMC will select six focus associations, two from each region, to receive targeted support from selected mother associations. In addition the WMC will analyze and determine where they can provide help by giving information, strategy tools and advice.
The WMC will also gather information about potential new countries where Round Table could be extended to, and supports extension efforts made by existing associations.
Any inquiries concerning the WMC can be addressed to the RTI Vice President firstname.lastname@example.org
