Dan Katze Elected New Outlook Group Vice President for 2013 Pioneer Year
Dan Katze joined the telecom industry in 1966, beginning with Bell Of Pennsylvania,outside of Philadelphia. He worked in Central Offices until going to Headquarters as a Staff Manager in the EEOC/Personnel department. He and his family moved to Denver, Colorado in 1982, first transferring to AT&T. His 35 year career took him through the spinoffs, first to Lucent Technologies, and then to Avaya, Inc. Dan managed engineering and technician teams, and served as Operations Manager for a technical call center. He retired in 2001.
His Pioneer career began in 1972 as a “Future Pioneer”. Since 1985 he has held
many officer positions at the Council and Chapter levels. He has worked on many committees and his efforts to keep Pioneering up to date have helped steer the organization toward a new definition of Pioneer Partners, eliminating a required number of years service needed to become a member, and the current membership trial studying the possibility of signing members from outside the telecom industry.
Dan’s passion for Pioneering is well known throughout all Pioneer Groups. Dan and his partner Nancy now reside in Loveland, Colorado and enjoy being around their family during summer stays in Glendo, Wyoming.
Pioneers is a network of volunteers who effect immediate, tangible change in local communities, in partnership with their sponsors.
We are the recognized world-class leader in volunteerism. We are respected and valued by our members, our corporations, the global community and our industry. We are committed to the diversity and personal growth of our members, the success of our companies and to improving the quality of life in our communities.
Inclusive and Relevant
We embrace members with different backgrounds, skills, and beliefs, because we know fresh ideas and unique viewpoints are necessary to meet the current and future needs of the people we serve.
Trustworthy and Compassionate
Our incredible success to date and our strong future is due entirely to our network of understanding, sensitive volunteers who thrive on responding to the critical needs of their communities.
Transparent and Accountable
As a volunteer and donation-driven organization, we make a promise to all our members and sponsors that we will be open about our business practices while maintaining the highest standards of financial accountability and integrity.
The Pioneers legacy is long and inspiring. It all began in 1911 with just 734 members (including Alexander Graham Bell). In the beginning, friendship and fellowship were what it was all about. Industry people recalling the facts, traditions, and memories of the early history of the telephone. But those who wrote the original Pioneers purpose were forward thinking in adding that it would also encourage "such other meritorious objects consistent with the foregoing as may be desirable." That became what would make the Pioneers different from other industry groups.
One of those "meritorious objects" translated into community service. Chapters, councils and clubs began their own initiatives, mostly working with childrens groups. By 1958, community service was established as the Pioneers' "New Tradition". Today, the organization is the world's largest group of industry-specific employees and retirees dedicated to community service. Pioneers volunteer more than 15 million hours annually responding to the individual needs of their communities.
