HISTORY OF EXCHANGE
The history of the organization dates back to the late 1800s when a group of businessmen began meeting for lunch in Detroit to exchange business leads and information. When the club formally organized in 1911, the name Exchange was chosen because of this "exchange" of information. Exchange became a national organization in 1917 and established its headquarters in Toledo, Ohio. Throughout the years, Exchangites have served their communities in important ways, including participation in aviation projects, a National Recovery Crusade following the Great Depression, youth projects, community service efforts and Americanization programs. In 1979, Child Abuse Prevention was adopted as Exchange's national project. Through numerous local child abuse prevention centers and the publishing and distribution of various educational materials, tens of thousands of parents and children have learned how to eliminate child abuse from their lives.
