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.
