The Albany Roundtable, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) corporation, provides a vital forum for civic discourse by hosting luncheons and presenting speakers with diverse points of view on timely subjects. The Albany Roundtable’s civic luncheons are open to the public and typically attract wide range of people active in business, the arts, not-for-profits, governments, neighborhoods and other urban activities.
