(Adopted as the philosophy which characterizes an Exchangite)
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.
Exchange is a service club. Exchangites provide community service both locally and nationally.
This is the best reason for becoming a member: the chance to do something for someone else and to know the fulfillment that comes from giving. Exchangites believe in Unity for Service. Together, we can and do make a difference everyday.
Everyone needs to network. Exchange consists of a cross section of the business community. Its members come from all walks of life. Exchangites help each other and collectively help others.
Exchange provides a regular opportunity for fellowship with people who have similar interests - people you will enjoy getting to know.
Membership in Exchange makes one a better community citizen. The average Exchange club consists of the most active citizens of any community.
Serving in an Exchange position is like a college education in leadership: learning to motivate, influence, and lead successful people.
Exchange is a lot of fun. Each meeting is fun. The club projects are fun. Social activities are fun. And, the service is fun.
Public Speaking Skills
Exchange develops confidence and skill in public communications and the opportunity to practice and perfect these skills.
Because there are Exchange clubs almost everywhere in America, many traveling Exchangites needing a doctor, a lawyer, a hotel, or advice have found assistance through an Exchange club member.
Exchange develops social skills and people skills. On every level - club, district and national- Exchange has parties, activities, conferences, conventions and seminars that provide entertainment in addition to information.
Exchangites are, above all, the nicest, most caring people you’ll meet anywhere. They are dedicated to helping one another, their community, and their country.
