Welcome to the DMACC Pioneers website.
The DMACC Pioneers are a group of retired faculty and staff from DMACC. Please select a link on the left side of this page for more information on our activities.
On Thursday September 6th the Pioneer Board and committee chairs met for our annual review and to set goals for 2013. Our guests for lunch were President Rob Denson, Greg Martin, and Joe DeHart.
The main topics of discussion were Pioneers fund raising efforts to meet the matching funds of $10,000 each year from the Ankeny DMACC Bookstore, how to improve visibility of DMACC in the community (advertising, outreach, involvement etc.), the upcoming property tax levy vote in 2013, and the History Committee final report.
It is apparent that our main fund-raising event, The Annual Garage Sale, is not going to be able to continue as an annual event. It was suggested that we supplement by holding a Pancake breakfast or even a Pizza buffet. Board members are contacting different event managers to determine the feasibility of these events. We will discuss results at our next regular board meeting in October.
With the upcoming property tax levy coming up for renewal next year (NOT AN INCREASE IN TAXES) it was shared that DMACC Pioneers have an important role to make others aware of the DMACC impact on thousands of lives that have been changed as a result of their educational efforts at the college.
Carroll Bennett shared his final History Committee report with the group. It was a very successful team effort and it is recommended that DMACC continue building on this important collection.
