The Roundtable is the Baker Institute's premier membership forum, dedicated to advancing the mission of the institute. Through annual giving, members of this group foster community engagement in some of the most pressing public policy challenges, while interacting with world leaders, national decision-makers and leading researchers. Beth Robertson chairs the Roundtable with honorary co-chairs Susan Baker and Y. Ping Sun.

To join the Roundtable, donate online now or fill out the Roundtable membership form and mail to the address on the form. For young professionals, there’s the Emerging Leaders or Associate Roundtable.
