Welcome to the Delta Pioneers!!!!!!
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 21 local chapters across Delta’s system located in ATL, BOS, CVG, DAY, DFW, DTW, EWR, FRA, HOU, LAX, LIT, MCO, MEM, MSP, MSY, ORD, PHX, RDU, SEA, SLC, and TYS.
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.
Attendees at our Convention have the opportunity to participate in our annual business meeting when the election of National Executive Officers and discussion of pertinent business for the organization is conducted.
Membership is open to:
Anyone who has officially retired from Delta Air Lines, Inc. and their spouse (including retired employees of airlines that were merged with or acquired by Delta Air Lines, Inc. and Connection Carriers owned or operated by Delta), and
Any current employees who have worked for Delta or a Delta Connection Carrier for at least 10 years.
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.
