The John C. Bogle Adirondack Roundtable Series is an arts and humanities program modeled on Boston’s Copley Roundtable, a discussion group of civic leaders that would invite speakers to present at informal mid-week luncheons. Our Roundtables are breakfast presentations, and each summer we bring three to four world-class presenters to speak on topics of national and international importance in the fields of politics and foreign policy, economics and finance, philosophy and philanthropy, and the visual and performing arts. John C. Bogle (1929-2019) was our Chair Emeritus of The Adirondack Roundtable.
The Roundtables are held in the Mountain View Room of the Whiteface Visitors and Conference Center on Main Street in Lake Placid. The programs begin at 8:30 a.m. with a buffet breakfast; speaker presentation starts at 9, lasts from 30-40 minutes, and is followed by an often spirited Q & A session. The program ends by 10:30, but discussions at the tables may continue at will.
Audience is limited to 100. The cost of admission is $25 per person for each Roundtable if reserved ahead of time and $30 per person for walk-ins and $10 for students ages 12 and older.
Unfortunately, Due to Covid-19 we will not be holding our roundtable series this summer. Please check back for the schedule here next spring for our 2021 dates with the below speakers.
