Online PR News – 29-May-2020 – Sarasota, FL – Founded in 1911, the National Exchange Club is a service organization supporting 630 clubs across the United States and Puerto Rico. Originally set up as a simple exchange of ideas among businessmen, the Club has become a prolific and powerful member of American communities from coast to coast.
The National Exchange Club’s 18,000 members offer three Programs of Service, including Americanism, Community Service, and Youth Programs. The organization highlights patriotism and pride in America, honoring military veterans and offering programs to benefit youth in all communities. Although projects may vary from chapter to chapter, they unite under their motto of Unity Through Service and their National Project for the prevention of child abuse.
Local Exchange Clubs serve their individual communities, are self-funded and are each supported by their own officers and Board of Directors. The goal is to form community partnerships with local business leaders and like-minded private individuals to take on the challenges facing families, youth and veterans in their region..
