What is the World Membership Committee?2017-01-28T11:12:15+00:00

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

How can I join Round Table2020-02-25T10:06:10+00:00

Membership of Round Table is open to young men aged between 18 and 40 [or 18 and 45] depending on your country of residence irrespective of their religious beliefs or political opinions.

You would normally join an individual club where you work or where you live so that you can benefit most from your membership as you certainly get out of it what you put in, as with any hobby. Most clubs meet twice a month and are responsible for creating their own programmes. This means that no two clubs are exactly the same. One meeting might be activity based and the next might involve a matter of local concern or provide an insight into a local business and there are always plenty of social events for partners or wives and families to get to know each other.
