The National Exchange Club is proud to announce that Robert Alan Davidson, Tucson, AZ, was inducted into the organization’s Court of Honor on Sat., Oct. 18, 2014. Davidson, owner of Davidson Advertising is a member of the Santa Rita Exchange Club of Tucson and the Exchange Club of Rincon-East Tucson. He was inducted alongside four others in honor of his outstanding contributions to the 103-year old service organization.
Induction into the Court of Honor, located at The National Exchange Club Headquarters in Toledo, OH, bestows the highest and most lasting recognition an Exchangite can receive. Honorees, and guests, are invited to an annual induction ceremony where their permanently inscribed names are unveiled on one of the seven granite monuments in the Court of Honor courtyard. There are more than 90 names inscribed on the Court of Honor pylons, including Charles Berkey, the founder of Exchange; Dr. Edward R. North, Jr., founder of The National Exchange Club Foundation for the Prevention of Child Abuse; Thomas L. Bailey, author of the Covenant of Service; and Herold M. Harter, who served as Exchange’s National Secretary for 44 years.
Davidson has served as National President of The National Exchange Club (2007-2008), National Exchange Club Board Member (2002-2006), National Exchange Club Foundation Trustee, and has held many other offices at club and district levels. In 1985, Davidson was presented the Outstanding District Director Award and, in 2002, received the Regional Vice President Patriot Award. Davidson is responsible for sponsoring 47 new Exchangites and has helped build seven new Exchange Clubs.
