To the 41ers Association of Southern Africa,
I trust that this letter finds you all in good health and high spirits. It is truly an honour and privilege for me to address the esteemed members of the 41ers Association of Southern Africa on behalf of the Round Table Southern Africa. Your dedication and continued support to our beloved organization is greatly appreciated.
As you now start with your new term, we would like to express our gratitude for the strong foundation and legacy that the 41ers has laid in fostering fellowship, friendship, and continued efforts to assist us to develop the members of RTSA. We are thankful for all the visits of 41ers to area conferences, club meetings and the willingness to share stories of old.
It is with great enthusiasm that I share some ideas on how our two organizations can collaborate further for the betterment of our community:
Mentorship and Networking Opportunities: One of our primary goals is to facilitate discussions where experienced members of the 41er Club can share their invaluable insights with the younger members of Round Table. This exchange of knowledge and experience will be instrumental in fostering personal and professional growth.
Fundraising Support: The 41ers, with its extensive network and resources, can play a pivotal role in assisting our members and clubs in its fundraising efforts. Whether through organizing events, reaching out to potential sponsors, or providing guidance. The 41ers can be a powerful ally in our shared mission.
Community Outreach Programs: By assisting in initiatives aimed at community development and service can have a profound impact on the communities we serve. The 41ers can contribute by providing logistical support, sharing resources, and lending their expertise in project planning and execution - Knowledge is Power - and the age-old Afrikaans saying: “Twee koppe is beter as een” is very apt.
Knowledge Sharing Platforms: Establishing a platform for knowledge sharing between the 41ers and Round Table members can be invaluable. This can take the form of newsletters, webinars, or even an online forum where members can exchange ideas and best practices.
Advocacy and Public Relations: Working together, we can amplify our voice in shouting about the good that we do and influence and inspire in the Drive of Impactful Change.
ARTSA, Area Conferences and Club Meetings: By creating an opportunity for the 41ers to address our members at an ARTSA, Area Conferences or Club meetings, to promote the 41ers Association of South Africa and to create opportunities for our outgoing members to join the 41ers.
RTSA Membership: The 41ers has various relationships with young men that can join RTSA and could pass these leads to our clubs.
I believe that by leveraging the strengths and resources of both the RTSA and the 41er Association of South Africa, we can achieve even greater heights of impact and service to our communities. I am eager to hear your thoughts and suggestions on how we can best implement these ideas.
Thank you for your unwavering commitment to the Round Table cause. Together, we can continue to make a positive difference and Drive Impactful Change in the lives of those we serve.
Hoping to see you all soon,
Yours in Table
Louis Radley RTSA
