The end of the first quarter of the financial year brought about a couple of Annual General Meetings. The first among these were held in Kathmandu, Nepal. It was the World AGM, and was held on September 4th,2016. Our Table, the Calcutta Sterling Round Table 106 (CSRT 106) had one of the highest attendees from India at the Annual General Meeting. This meeting served as a perfect exposure to our Tablers to those from different parts of the globe, and to also gain some knowledge and experience as to how things and activities are done globally.
The second AGM was the National Annual General Meeting of the Round Table of India held at Bengaluru, Karnataka. The AGM attended by several Tables across the country. This again proved to be a learning experience as to how things were done in several other parts in a rather more local manner. It also gives us immense proud to be associated with such industrious, energetic and dynamic individuals in our Table, and to see their hard work recognised at the national levels. Our Table won the award for the Best Secretary ( Tr. Amit Pansari), Best Fellowship Trophy Award (Tr Neeraj Poddar), Balance Activities Shield COM1, Best Area Secretary COM 1 (Tr. Vivek Dalmia).
Keeping up the spirit of the Best Fellowship Award, we organised the first fellowship event of this fall. The even took place in a bungalow at Alipore, and was organised as a games night. Several games were played by all the Tablers and their family, and what a night of frolic it was! The event was also attended by the Chairman of the Ranchi Table. The fellowship was such that it gave us all a truck load of memories to reminiscence and be nostalgic about, while bringing us closer at the same time.
What proved to be another fantastic month for us had one more joyous news. We are now joined by seven tireless and enthusiastic inductees, who share our zeal and outlook towards the society, and vow to endeavour in helping us bring about a greater deal of good in the society by being a part of our Table.
