In Luxembourg, the Round Table association takes the form of a non-profit association (ASBL) whose updated statutes were published in Mémorial C -N° 2562 of 15 October 2013 (pages 122963-122970).
Like its foreign sisters, it has numbered "Tables" distributed throughout the country, each with between 20 and 30 members.
Currently, approximately 160 members are spread over 7 local tables: TR1, TR3 and TR6 in Luxembourg, TR2 in Esch-sur-Alzette, TR4 in the North, TR5 in the Moselle region and TR7 in the Mullerthal region.
In addition, each Local Table operates independently with its own Committee, always composed of a President, a Past-President, a Vice-President, a Secretary, a Treasurer and an IRO.
The association is managed by a National Committee which is composed as follows:
He embodies the values and aspirations of the movement and tries to carry out concerted action around a personal leitmotiv, he is the first to serve all
he assists by providing advice and representation
He observes and learns for his future role as President and replaces the President when he is absent
he is the driving force behind internal communications
he is the financial guardian
he is in charge of international affairs
he assists the IRO, observes and prepares to replace it during its next term of office
he is in charge of public relations in Luxembourg
He ensures the coordination of charitable actions
He manages stocks and sells Round Table products: T-shirts, badges....
He ensures the Internet presence of the TRL
TR1: Yves THORN TR2: Steve WAGNER TR3: Paul VAN DEN ABEELE TR4: Sasha OBERWEIS TR5: Marc FUSENIG TR6: Sasha THILL TR7: Pol POOS
As newly elected National President, I’m really happy to move the good work forward that my predecessors have delivered. Whit our election as Association of the year in the CEETM region we have to hold our grounds and lead by giving a good example. With that in mind, this year stands for Opportunities that we can take. Thanks to Gilles Walers and his HYM committee we will have a splendid International event in February where we can show the world where a small country can be big in. On this podium we can discuss how we can do better, where help is needed and how as Luxembourg we can mark our fellowship and friendship.
To finish off, have this year a lot of fun, take the opportunity to forge new friendships and go out there! Do not be a stranger with your neighboring Tablers, join their statutory or see one of their Community Service events. I would love to see you on national and international events, where we can share the same rich values and beliefs we stand for!
Thanks RT6 for supporting me as National President and of course all other Tablers in Luxembourg who are supporting me in making this a great Tabling year.
Vive la Table Ronde Luxembourgeoise !
Yours in Tabling,
Robert Van den OORD
National President 2019/2020
The national associations are all part of one of the world's sub-regions, namely the Africa region, the Asia-Pacific region and the EMA, Europe, the Mediterranean and America region, of which the Luxembourg Round Table is a member.
In addition, there are three subgroups within the ENA region: the Central Tablers' Meeting (CTM), Southern Tablers' Meeting (STM) and Nordic Tablers' Meeting (NTM).
The world regions form the subdivisions of the International Round Table (IRT), which oversees all the organizations of the Round Table around the world. The RTI is in turn part, with other service-clubs (Apex, Active 20-30...) of the World Council of Service Clubs (WOCO).
Some divisions have legal personality such as national associations, global sub-regions, RTI, WOCO... while others are not: Local Tables, CTM, STM, NTM,... In particular, the EMA region has adopted special rules (standing orders) and operates with a Secretary and a President.
Each subdivision organizes at least one meeting per year at its level.
