The Executive Round Table records are composed of the notebooks of Rita Morgulis and Linda Moran, detailing their work and activities during the years each served as President of the Executive Round Table. Subject matter of the folders includes minutes of meetings, Constitution and By-Laws, Officers' Manual, financial reports, dinner programs/SFI, corporate sponsorship, membership, correspondence, and officer descriptions and elections.
The Executive Round Table was founded in 1956. Its purpose is to encourage excellence in its members and to develop future business and industrial executives dedicated to high standards of leadership and ethics. A Constitution and By-Laws govern the Executive Round Table.
In 1963 the Executive Round Table assumed responsibility for sponsoring a new leadership conference at Callaway Gardens. This conference has evolved into a weekend event and taken the name of Student-Faculty-Industry Conference (SFI Conference).
The Executive Round Table program revolves around dinner meetings which are held twice a quarter. At these meetings, a distinguished speaker will talk on a topic of current significance and provoke conversation in the "Round Table" environment.
All potential members must first be approved by the Board of Directors before being offered invitations to join the Executive Round Table. Student members are selected from the student body with the aid of an interview process. Students are invited to join if they demonstrate integrity in their campus relationships, if they appear highly motivated to communicate, and if they take an interest in positions of leadership. Faculty and industry members can only be invited for membership after receiving a majority vote from a quorum of the Board of Directors. Industry, faculty, and administration members are specially chosen by recommendation process. They are invited after being recommended by current members, corporation executives, and their peers.
Records are arranged in two series. Series have been designated for the presidencies of Rita Morgulis and Linda Moran. Records are arranged alphabetically by subject matter within each series.
A print copy of this finding aid is available in the Georgia Tech Archives reading room.
