Round Table Gauteng Area is a non-political, non-denominational association of young men between the ages of 18 and 40 embracing representatives of nearly every profession and occupation.
Our objectives encompass the encouragement of high ethical standards, the promotion of intercommunication and fellowship among young professional men, the quickening of individual interest in everything affecting the public welfare and the promotion of understanding amongst peoples of different cultural, language and political backgrounds.
The name “Round Table” is not directly drawn from Arthurian Legend; rather both its title and its maxim comes from a speech made to the British Industries Fair in 1927 by the then HRH Prince Edward, Prince of Wales ‘The young business and professional men of this country must get together round the table, adopt methods that have proved so sound in the past, adapt them to the changing needs of the times and wherever possible, improve them’. The phrase “adopt, adapt, improve” is a key facet of the organisation, and is often seen on Round Table literature and regalia.
