HYM 41 INTERNATIONAL Sept 20, 2020 (virtually)

Dear President and IRO
Greetings from the International Board.

We are having a zoom meet on September 20, 2020 for all the delegates of member countries, and floor members on the following topics;

Topic: HYM 2020

  1. The election of VP elect should be one year prior to the post, and not as two years at present
  2. Lets make a Tabler
  3. 41ER World
  4. Presentation of the RTI family Logo
  5. The revised Budgets for the year 2019-21 and 2021-22

1 The election of VP elect should be one year prior to the post, and not as two years at present. Anchored by Tom/Barry.    At the moment, in Verona we will elect someone to be:

Second Vice President Elect for2021/2 (Luca’s year) – with no voting rights or attendance at Board Meetings – who will be

Second Vice President for 2022/3 (Tom’s year) – with no voting rights and optional attendance at Board Meetings – who will be

  Vice President for 2023/4 (Barry’s year) – with voting rights – who will be President for 2024/5

This is far too much lead up. After you are elected, you do absolutely nothing for the first year. Just wait.

Previously when we elected the country first and then later the country nominated their candidate, there was 6 months less.

Countries elect their Prime Ministers with often no notice, it is just not necessary to have 3 full years notice before you are President of 41 INTERNATIONAL.

The Board is therefore considering having no election for Second Vice President Elect in Verona, moving on to an election for Second Vice in Bergen. This would still be in line with section 5A of the rules shown below and would mean that the new Second Vice President would take office immediately the election had taken place.

There is actually nothing in the rules about us having or needing a Second Vice President, so there is a argument to say we should elect a Vice President who would take office immediately. We think this last option a bit radical, so we are just suggesting the election should be for a Second Vice President.

2 Lets make a Tabler this will be anchored by President Luc. Due to the covid crisis, many RT clubs have held fewer physical meetings making it more difficult for them to invite new guests and prospective members into their clubs. RT will need more support from us, ex-tablers with experience to help them grow.  

The “Make a Tabler” programme started last year continues this year and the next. In the forum, recipes about how to bring young men to Round Table will be presented and exchanged. If your associations is currently planning a local strategy, you will be welcome to say a word about it.

3 41ER World will be anchored by webmaster Fabian supported by Glenn Vanhaeren – CTO & Co-Founder of Peepl. 41ER.WORLD is much more than a member database and content management system!

41ER.WORLD is a management software where members can manage their own data online at any time. A system that automatically assigns access rights for functions and takes different admin levels into account. A database that allows you to store and historicize everything you have worked on and make it available to your successors in office. A communication platform, exclusively for Round Table Family members – worldwide – Round Table International (TABLER.WORLD), Ladies Circle International (CIRCLER.WORLD), 41 INTERNATIONAL (41ER.WORLD), Tangent Club International (TANGENTCLUB.WORLD and Agora Club International (AGORACLUB.WORLD).

#roundtablefamily – different organizations, different design & colors, different content, different members & functions, but they share the same big heart for the good cause and the same goals.

The system offers each tabler a structured and clear presentation, tabler news, events and information and this for each level – table, district, association and international. For confidential data and information, visibility can be limited to specific groups and functions (for example, only table presidents, or only national board). Manage all your documents, minutes and photos with history in one place and assign permissions, with backups and always available – digital archive at every level!

Communication made easy – find tablers online anytime – for example the president of Austria, the webmaster of Finland or the current president of your international partner table. Already on board: Austria, Belgium, Finland, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland – more countries in preparation! You can also find members of the Round Table Family, as long as the data is released by the countries or members.

You can access all information on all devices, such as PC, MAC, Tablet and Smartphone worldwide and easy. In the future there will be a Smartphone App, which has even more functions like direct chat and geolocation.

#getconnected – connect with the tabler community worldwide and with dearest friends from the club family all over the world!
