APEX Club of GeelongPrint Page Print this page

A plaque marks the site of the ABC Café where APEX was founded in 1930.

The first Apex Club started in Geelong when three architects attempted to join the Rotary Club of Geelong. As Rotary has a rule restricting one profession to each club, the three architects - Ewan Laird, Langham Proud and John Buchan, went on to form the Apex Club of Geelong.
