Letter From The President

I want to start off by thanking everyone in our district who attended the National Convention in New Orleans.  As the host district, our members did not disappoint the crowd. It was a very proud moment for the Texas Louisiana Gulf Coast District.  There are a lot of Exchangites from around the country looking forward to coming to Houston in 2016.  With the NOLA experience under our belts, I can’t wait to see what we can do in Houston.

This year can be a very special year for our district.  The district leadership team, including myself, is committed to supporting all of the clubs in their efforts to grow, strengthen and expand Exchange by adding new members and starting new clubs throughout the district.

I am blessed with a terrific team of leaders and officers assisting me this year as we chart a course for success and look forward to getting to know all of the clubs and witnessing first-hand the efforts put forth by our great members. 

As I have always preached, it does not take much effort to bring a guest to your meetings.  Without guests, we will not grow.  Without growth, we will not be able to serve our communities.  

In addition to our district board, we have several other resources to assist your club in efforts to grow and start new clubs.   If you have ideas for a new club, a new project, or a new way to do things, let your district director know about it.  There may be help just around the corner.

Our district by-laws include “Increasing fellowship between clubs within the district”.  My goal
is to make this the year that more clubs take interest, assist, and most importantly, learn from
each other. Together we can make this  a very positive year for the district, your club, and

God bless all of you and your families.

Tony Ackerman

District President,

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.
