Family, Community, and Country
The National Exchange Club is the oldest service organization in the US with more than 650 local clubs. We provide opportunities for you develop skills that will benefit your community and country.
The Exchange Club was founded in 1911 by a group of business owners looking to grow their businesses. They knew that in order for their businesses to prosper, they needed to have strong communities. There are currently over 20,000 members throughout the US and Puerto Rico.
Charles A. Berkey started the first club suggesting the name "Exchange" because he wanted the group to exchange ideas and information about how to better serve the community. These ideas grew over time and have resulted in many benefits to the nation.
