2013-2014 Exchange Year

Stand Up America Logo


How does Stand Up America Work? Club members identify prospective members and share your Exchange experiences with them. Current and reinstated members are not eligible.

Provide prospective members with the enclosed recruitment card, invite them to a meeting and ask them to join.

Sign up new members! Send completed cards to National Headquarters, or enroll new members online (select the “How to Join” tab). National, District and Club dues are waived for one quarter (meal charges are optional, at each club’s discretion).

Parading the spirit of exchange with passion & commitment!

Everyone loves a parade … it can be the Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Christmas Parade, the Memorial Day Parade, Veterans Day Parade, the Homecoming Parade, and yes, a Mardi Gras Parade. My father was very passionate about his Mardi Gras in Mobile, Alabama – the original home of Mardi Gras. I have dedicated the Parading theme in his memory.

So we have one full year to Parade the Spirit of Exchange with Passion and Commitment, leading up to the convention next year in New Orleans, which is known for its Mardi Gras. Let’s make a new commitment to keep the Spirit of Exchange alive and growing!


Just One More!

When each of us joined Exchange, we made several commitments – one of those commitments was to share the gift of membership in Exchange with others. I have the passion and the commitment to help you each get Just One More member into the Exchange family.

So the question is, how many people does it take to make a difference in Exchange? President John F. Kennedy said that ONE person can make a difference, and every person must try. It takes each of us to make a difference for all of us.

What if each of us took the attitude of “Each One, Reach One?” What if each of us spontaneously decided that, one by one, we really can be a better Exchange Club than we wish for? To Exchange, you may be one member, but to one person whom you have helped, you may be the world. We may not change the world, but we can change the world for one person – it might be an abuse or neglected child; it might be a senior citizen; it might be for a person with disabilities; it might be a Veteran.

Who is the ONE most important person in The National Exchange Club? YOU are – you are the ONE.

Now is the time to empower each of our new members to become the ONE most important person in Exchange. Combine two or more good hearted people in the pursuit of a common cause, and suddenly one-plus-one is more than two. It is called synergy.

If every Exchangite recruited just one new member this coming year, Exchange would double its membership!

*Note: Only one winner will be chosen at the end of the year to recieve the billboards.
