3 Why this workshop (2)? But… what we hear from discussions between us and what seems to be current reality: “We have not much contact with our national Round Table organisation … but some tables have good contact …“ „Only a small %age of leaving Round Tablers are joining our 41/OT organisation … many join Lions and Rotary, no interest in 41/OT because of lack of activity…“ „Round Table is not well in our country, so we cannot get enough 41/OT members … we cannot grow if we do not accept Non-Ex-Tablers …“ „Times have changed, people are to busy to join 41/OT…“ Looks like this or similar discussions are going on for years now in most associations … 10/11/20143 OT 41 International Workshop Working together between 41-OT and RT ppt

8 Sharing current situation – Old Tablers Germany (2) Situation after 2007 Meeting / 2008: RTD board and OTD board including the district / area chairmen started to meet twice a year to build relationship and identify actions to improve the situation At the 2008 OTD AGM: Several Old Tables were seeking to introduce service activities into the Old Tablers community, introducing the idea to support the former national RT Service Project “School of Hope” in Kenya, as it still needed funds to finish the project… Let’s do service projects on local joint table basis!! This would drive activity and joint work with RT on all levels in the organisation… would make us more attractive for Round Tablers to join Old Tablers… 10/11/20148 OT 41 International Workshop Working together between 41-OT and RT ppt

9 Sharing current situation – Old Tablers Germany (3) Situation 2008 at the OTD AGM: Result: Big concerns / resistance against service from many Old Tablers on one side… “we are a club of friends, not a service club… we have not done service for 30 years, we do not want to change… But also: big support from many Old Tablers to get more active and carry on similar how they did at Round Table days… Fundamental discussions went on for 18 months… 10/11/20149 OT 41 International Workshop Working together between 41-OT and RT ppt
