MEDIA RELEASE
MARCH 25, 2006
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



                                           APEX - SHARE THE SPIRIT!

Apex is a community service organisation, founded on the principles of community service, friendship and
personal development.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the only Australian service club to be founded right here in Australia
and, with so much going on, there has never been a better time to become an Apexian.
Apex is open to men and women between the ages of 18 and 45, who believe they have something to offer
their community, their country and who want to develop their own potential.
Apex is not just about the money and support we provide to projects from the smallest project on a
community scale to national and international endeavours but is also about forging friendships, gaining
satisfaction from doing good for others and personal development for members, such as gaining public
speaking and project management skills.
When you join an Apex club, you make friends for life.
While your Apex membership takes on a new perspective at the age of 45, many former Apexians continue
to stay in touch on a personal level or join Apex 40, which is not a community service club but an
organisation formed by past Apexians and their partners to retain the contact with the many friends
discovered during their Apex years.
As well, the theme for the 75th anniversary is to reconnect with past members.
Apex clubs are probably best known for their work in local communities - clubs donate annually hundreds of
hours of their time to numerous causes, raise funds from local residents to help locally and lobby actively to
ensure action is taken on important social issues.
Nationally, in the past 75 years Apex has provided support in the 1930s to set up the Royal Flying Doctor
Service, established Foundation 41 to research the cause of birth abnormalities, raised $1.3million to build
the Apex research centre for research into cancer and leukaemia in children, built a chalet in the Snowy
Mountains for disadvantaged children and much more.
You could be a part of what happens during the next 75 years of Apex.
All you have to do is get in contact with an Apex club in your community (if your community does not have a
club, why not get together with other community-minded people and form one?), go along to a few meetings,
meet some people and see if it is what you are looking for.
Apexians are busy people with work and family commitments just like you - Apex does not demand too much
of your personal time, instead we ask that you attend dinner meetings regularly and spend approximately
two to four hours per month on service work and, of course, you are always welcome at the regular social
get-togethers.
To find out more about joining Apex, our 75th year celebrations or attending a club meeting in your area, log
on to www. apex.org.au or free call 1800 816 608.
