Meet Dan Caldwell

Welcome to The Booster Leader! This site is designed for you, the leader of your child’s extracurricular booster organization. Whether you serve as an officer, a committee chair, or a general volunteer, there is something here for you!

I’m Dan Caldwell, author of The Booster Leader, 35 Leadership Essentials for a Thriving Booster Organization. I equip parent volunteers to lead with confidence so that they can provide exceptional extracurricular opportunities for their children.

I have led student support organizations for nearly two decades. I served the Blackman High School Band Boosters for eight years in roles of increasing responsibility: volunteer, chaperone, committee chair, vice president, and president. For twelve years, I served in a variety of leadership roles with the Boy Scouts of America as my son pursued and achieved the rank of Eagle scout.

I am certified by Toastmasters International as a Competent Communicator.

Professionally, I am the head of technical training in the U.S. for a Fortune Global 50 company. Connect with me on LinkedIn here!

I have been married to my wife, Katrina, for twenty-nine years. We have two children, Grant and Katelyn. We live in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, just outside of Nashville.

I’m a huge Elvis fan – I own a copy of every song he ever recorded! I enjoy traveling, reading, and an occasional History Channel show!
