Is it possible to specify WINAPI when calling a function

The following won't compile because GetProcAddress name clashs between the class and WINAPI. If I rename MY_ODBC_DriverMangerClass::GetProcAddress  then it works. Is there any way I can specify the WINAPI call within the body of the class function so I can keep the same function name? Any alternative suggestions?

class MY_ODBC_DriverMangerClass
{
      private:
            HINSTANCE DLLinstance;
      public:
            VOID LoadDriverManager() { DLLinstance = LoadLibrary(_T("odbc32.dll")); };
            FARPROC WINAPI GetProcAddress(__in  LPCSTR lpProcName) {return(GetProcAddress(DLLinstance,lpProcName));};
};

Just use the scope resolution operator '::' to distinguish between the Windows API and your member function and that will compile fine:
class MY_ODBC_DriverMangerClass
{
      private:
            HINSTANCE DLLinstance;
      public:
            VOID LoadDriverManager() { DLLinstance = LoadLibrary(_T("odbc32.dll")); };
            FARPROC WINAPI GetProcAddress(__in  LPCSTR lpProcName) {return(::GetProcAddress(DLLinstance,lpProcName));};
};
