Florida All Media Roundtable


Founded 1950, New York City by George Allen


Media Roundtable Luncheon Schedule

2017 - 2018  Season, Our 68th

.  If you are new to The Media Roundtable and not yet on our mailing list checkout this site and e-mail me to be added to the list if you are "media connected." We define "media" quite broadly. There are NO membership fees, dues or any costs beyond lunch.  Once you attend you are automatically a "member."


For more information see: "Dates & Reservations"

Reservation Mailings will go our early to mid-August  Immediate reply is appreciated, with a September 18 deadline. We will process requests in late September,  at which point we'll play "god" again allocating "confirmations" and "wait lists" as fairly as possible.  Dates have been set, where possible, to avoid "same week" meetings with the Broadcasters Club .

If you have new member/guest prospects for the new season  please call me after you have received your dates and know which of those dates your prospect can join us. 

A number of new participants joined us last season. Many have remained active offering refreshing views and perspectives.

Participants are encouraged to book interesting guests as new members. (For qualifications see Qualifications for Membership.) The 2017-18 luncheon schedule is posted  with a full season of 13 dates.  (See "Dates & Reservations").

We continue to meet at  The Field Club. The Club provides good food, a perfect setting with a quiet,  private room,  plenty of elbow room, convenient and adequate parking, a handicap ramp right to the meeting room and a beautiful view of the Intracoastal waterway.

The room is available at 11:30 a.m.  Iced tea, tea and coffee orders are taken early. Other beverages are not available because  Florida law prohibits a private club from collecting  monies from non-members. Cost for the 2017-18 season  is now $26.

We encourage you to invite new guests.  Please check this internet site for “qualifications” -and they are loosely defined, than give me a call to schedule the best date available. 

Should you invite new members to join us this season we highly recommend you refer them to "Your First Meeting" here at where they can learn Roundtable history, customs (suggested dress, Dutch treat and nature of the “first visit), directions to the Field Club,  etc.

Continuing 67 years of Roundtable tradition meetings concentrate on  current issues and future developments without dwelling on the past - though a bit of nostalgia is always welcome.  Sport coat  suggested for men (tie optional), religion and politics discouraged unless discussing media coverage of same.

Participation is easy, as long as you qualify as a media person. (See "Membership")

Once a participant, always a "member." There are no annual dues, no board of directors, no constitution or by-laws. We keep it simple!

Reservations are required as seating is limited. Please cancel if you're not going to make it. We make good use of a waiting list. If its full up on first contact, ask to be on the waiting list.
