National Membership and Round Table Liaison Officer

As you will be aware I am a great supporter of 41 Club and Round Table both locally and nationally in helping both to remain active and grow.

We need to support our own clubs, support round table and encourage more past tablers to join your club. Please give me your feedback so I can help you.

I am running for National Board in April and with your support will be competing against one other National Councillor from Somerset.

Wish me luck !

I am the end of my role as National Councillor for Region 11 so will be passing that honour to someone else.  They should shortly be asking you for nominations so this is a bit of advance notice to give it some thought. I have thoroughly enjoyed the role and have taken part in lots of brilliant activities with you all.

The Purposes and Objects of the Association

·         Promote opportunities for fellowship amongst former members of Round Table

·         Encourage active involvement in the community

·         Use our experience in support of the Round Table Family

·         Encourage international relationships

National President & Vice President

Dave Campbell (president@41club.org) continues his visits to clubs across the country and to promote the benefits of the Prince’s Trust which supports disadvantaged youngsters. As well as donations which are gratefully received numerous members have become mentors to support young people.

Phil Ellis is the Vice President (vicepresident@41club.org) will take over at the AGM in Belfast.

Priorities remain as fun, fellowship and community.
