The Delta Pioneers organization was established in 1976. Our mission is to maintain and strengthen the close friendships and associations of the members (both active and retired) and also to provide volunteers supporting various Delta Air Lines' functions.
There are 16 local chapters across Delta’s system: ATL, BOS, CVG, DFW, DTW, EWR, HOU, LIT, MCO, MEM, MSP, MSY, ORD, RDU, SEA, and SLC.
Local Delta Pioneers chapters meet and plan activities which encourage socializing and volunteering by its members. Various local chapters sponsor events and activities throughout the year such as monthly lunch meetings, Christmas parties, Spring/Fall picnics, a clambake, and trips to domestic and international destinations which are extended to all members of our organization; both Delta retirees including their spouse and those members who are still active employees.
The Delta Pioneers distribute a National newsletter to all members several times a year.
In addition, some of the local chapters provide a newsletter to their members.
Time sensitive information is posted on our website, www.deltapioneersinc.com, and our Facebook page, Delta Pioneers, as it becomes known to us.
A National Convention is held each year offering networking opportunities for attendees from various local chapters via activities such as dinners, speakers, and tours.
Regular membership shall be comprised of (a) retired employees of Delta Air Lines, Inc., (b) retired employees of airlines or other companies merged with or acquired by or a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, Inc., (c) active employees of Delta Air Lines, Inc., and companies owned by or a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, Inc. who have at least 7 years of continuous employment, and (d) spouse or domestic partner of the above. A surviving spouse or domestic partner shall retain membership as long as annual dues are paid. All retirees and employees who have current active membership will retain membership regardless of the status of their company.
Annual National dues are $15. Membership includes your spouse. If you join a local chapter, $5.00 of your dues will be rebated to your local chapter (pending funds are available) to help defray chapter operation costs. Some local chapters may charge additional dues which are retained and used locally.
It is not necessary to join a local chapter to become a Pioneer, but it is necessary to join the National Pioneers to belong to one of the chapters. If you choose not to belong to a specific city chapter, you are considered a member at large.
