Letter From The President

     A huge “THANK YOU    to everyone who attended  the  97th  National  Convention in Columbus Ohio.  I am pleased to report that our District won several outstanding accomplishment awards in the website & newsletter categories and it’s nice to see all the hard work keeping you informed about your District paying off! 

   Not to be over-looked was our hospitality suite where up & coming country star Billy Dawson was a hit with everyone.  Everyone pitched in to make it a great time and it showed!  We have set the bar high with our performance in New Orleans & Columbus and I know we will rise to the occasion again in HOUSTON 2016!  We have begun the planning process in earnest now and will need help in the areas of hospitality and transportation especially, so don’t be afraid to “Show Up & Step Up”.   It’s just a part of being #ExchangeStrong!

   Your leadership team is committed to continuing the work begun under now Past President Tony Ackerman and his predecessor Steve Wells in making our District and our clubs grow to be better able to serve our community.  Growth AND ESPECIALLY RETENTION are major objectives at all levels and there is a lot of support and many resources available for making it happen, so let me know your thoughts & ideas on how the District can help.  I keep reminding myself that just over 10 months remain to meet all our goals for the year so the time to get a move on is now!

   The Exchange Strong theme is catching on nationwide. I hope you too feel the vibe – WE are Exchange Strong!  Please share your photos & stories on social media to display that you are Exchange Strong as you participate in club and district events.  This builds our brand and spreads our enthusiasm.  Thank you for being a part of the Texas – Louisiana Gulf Coast District!

Mike Reichek

District President

  • 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.
