About the John C. Bogle Roundtable Series

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 world-class presenters to speak on topics of topics of local, 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.
