We recently welcomed Dan Meyer to our board of trustees, where he will serve a renewable three-year term.
Dan is the board chair of Atomic Learning, Inc., which provides technology training services and products to schools, small businesses and individuals. Meyer was among a group of educators who launched Atomic Learning in 2000 and served as CEO from 2007 through 2012.
“Dan’s passion for technology and education make him an excellent addition to our board as we address challenges facing central Minnesota businesses and communities,” said Kathy Gaalswyk, Initiative Foundation president.
“The combination of changing demographics in the workforce, skills needed by an increasingly technological workplace and the globalization of our economy present significant challenges and opportunities for the Initiative Foundation to continue to positively impact the region,” said Meyer. “Being asked to be on the Board of Trustees is a significant honor.”
Dan holds a BA in Business Education from Concordia College, Moorhead, MN and a MA in Technology & Learning from the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, MN. Dan currently serves on the Brainerd YMCA Foundation Board and has been involved with many other organizations including the International Society for Technology in Education and Partnership for 21st Century Skills.
