                                                                                   About Torch in general....

The first Torch Club was organized in 1924. Originally, membership was restricted to "members of the learned professions." With the emergence of many new professions, the definition of eligibility has been widened to include those "members from other disciplines pursued by a person in a recognized professional manner." However, the local club has the right to set the general boundaries.

TORCH is an international association of local clubs in which respected persons practicing recognized professions enjoy the cultural interchange of knowledge. The clubs are organized in an International Association of TORCH Clubs, a non-profit corporation that provides common services to its member organizations.

Over 80 local TORCH Clubs comprising 3,000 members operate in 75 locations in the United States and Canada. Each has a monthly dinner meeting, which is highlighted by the presentation of a paper by a member or guest on a topic of concern to modern society. Following the presentation, the members discuss the subject. It is through this sharing of knowledge and airing of divergent views that TORCH becomes such a unique and rewarding experience.

                                                                            The Schenectady Torch Club

The Schenectady Torch Club is a member of the International Association of Torch Clubs that consists of many local semi-autonomous clubs. A complete list is given on the web page of the international association,  the Schenectady Club being in Region One. The mission of a Torch Club is to extol controversy while promoting free interchange among its members on intellectual and cultural subjects including, but not restricted to, civic, religious, philosophic, scientific, economic, artistic, political, and other similar topics. We champion neither specific causes nor do we subscribe to any propaganda or ideologies. In the broadest terms the Schenectady Torch Club seeks to stimulate understanding among the learned professions with the conviction that its members will gain a mutual understanding of each other and thus appreciate the function each plays in our society.

The Schenectady Torch Club was chartered in 1931.  The first meeting was held on Tuesday, January 20 of that year at the Van Curler Hotel. The speaker was Dr. George B. Cutten,  President of Colgate, whose talk was entitled "Is Man Doomed to Extinction?"  The dinner cost was 2$.

Schenectady Torch is proud to have been the first to admit women, having voted to do so unanimously  in 1973. It has since elected four female presidents. Schenectady Torch continues to pioneer the broadest possible spectrum of membership commensurate with its commitment to serve the professional community. The Club has more than 70 active members drawn from local business, state and local government, colleges and universities, and a variety of professions.

The Club meets at 6:00  p.m. on the second Thursday of each month from October through May. The current venue is the Turf Tavern in Scotia. A Torch evening consists of dinner followed by a speaker who is most often a Club member but who also may be an outside guest. Members are encouraged to bring guests to any meeting, but are especially encouraged to do so for the May meeting, once called "Ladies' Night," then "Spouses' Night," and now "Guests' Night."

Membership is open to all professions. Potential new members are usually sponsored by two or more members and are introduced to the Club at one meeting and, should they apply to join, are voted to membership at a later meeting.

The annual cost of membership, which includes meals and the  International dues, is set by the Torch officers the summer before  each Torch season. The current dues are $200 per year and are payable before the October meeting. Our national dues cover three issues per year of Torch Magazine, which reprints transcripts of those talks chosen as the best ones from among those nominated by local clubs.

The Club typically grants a partial subsidy to one of its members to attend the annual convention of the International Association of Torch Clubs. When that convention is held locally, the Albany and Schenectady Clubs are usually designated as joint hosts.
