What is a Tabler?

As a Past President of RTCA, I have been asked to write something short for our Web site and thought I would touch on my experience as a Tabler. What is a Tabler? Over the years I have come to realise that a Tabler is best defined as a friend you have not yet met and I have made so many friends (Tablers) all over the place.

Having joined Round Table as a Charter Member of Harare 66 in 1999, the one particular event, or should I say my turning point and true understanding of what Round Table is, only came in 2002. We were invited to a numbers meeting (RT 66 Tables around the world) in South Africa a week or so before the event, as the organisers had not been able to get hold of us. I had never traveled to a Table event, let alone one with international Tablers. I did not know what to expect from other Tablers. To my surprise, Tablers from Belgium, France, South Africa and India were just the same sort of guys as Tablers from Zim. The overall weekend experience was as if we had met long before and were best buddies. I have never looked back from then and have made an effort to travel beyond our borders every year. Not only have I learnt a lot and gained experience but I have also met friends that I would not have otherwise known. I also consider these Tablers friends for life as we have built strong relationships beyond Tabling. I can call on any of them for any assistance whether business or personal.

In closing, Round Table for me has been a way of life. What I have gained from my involvement has helped me both in my profession and in my personal life. I am proud and privileged to have joined such a wonderful organisation.
