The Vancouver Executives Association (VanEx) was founded in 1920 by a group of Vancouver’s leading businessmen who decided to form a group for the purpose of assisting each other’s business success through cooperative networking. By limiting membership to one company per business classification, an atmosphere of openness and sharing was assured. Since members were all decision-makers within their respective firms, whatever the size, business dealings were easily facilitated. Over the years, names changed and businesses evolved. There is no longer a company that delivers coal and sawdust in a horse and buggy and typewriter dealers are now computer specialists. Despite the constant change, the basic VanEx ideology has endured: to promote good business in an atmosphere that is collegial, congenial, and cooperative.
