Letter From The President

     Wow!  We just arrived back from our National Convention in Jacksonville, FL.  Your Texas Louisiana Gulf Coast District was well represented.  We cleaned up on awards at the club and district level.  I’m sure you realize how awesome our District is.

The theme throughout the convention was one of optimistic growth.  The feeling is that Exchange is well positioned to grow its membership in the clubs as well as building new clubs.

  This year’s class of District Presidents under our National President Phil Howard chose the name Exchange Ambassadors.  We accept the implied expectations and responsibilities.

    We must:

Accept the roles of special emissary and of champion
Go about our business with understanding, knowledge, and wisdom.
Be positive, enthusiastic, passionate, and unified.


     We have set our goals high to build new clubs in our District.  We stand ready to assist our Clubs to achieve their goals.  We will offer continuous training to develop our leaders of tomorrow.

Yours in service,



Change in Title / No Change in responsibility

     Notice, we have changed the titles of our VPs to Committee Chairs.  These Committee Chairs will still be on the District board with the same responsibilities.

America's Service Club

   The National Exchange Club – a service organization with 700 clubs and more than 20,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico – celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2011. Founded in 1911 in Detroit by business leaders who wanted to “exchange” ideas on making their community better, the Exchange Club moved its headquarters to Toledo in 1917. 

   Its core values – Family, Community and Country are held by each Exchange member with pride and commitment. For over one hundred years, Exchange Club volunteer efforts have supported the needs of the country and of local communities, making it the country’s oldest American service organization operating exclusively in this country.

Exchange Covenant of Service

Accepting the divine privilege of single and collective responsibility as life’s noblest gift, I covenant with my fellow Exchangites:
  • To consecrate my best energies to the uplifting of Social, Religious, Political and Business ideals;
  • To discharge the debt I owe to those of high and low estate who have served and sacrificed that the heritage of American citizenship might be mine;
  • To honor and respect law, to serve my fellowmen, and to uphold the ideals and institutions of my Country;
  • To implant the life-giving, society-building spirit of Service and Comradeship in my social and business relationships;
  • To serve in Unity with those seeking better conditions, better understandings, and greater opportunities for all.
