Dickinson has volunteered and served on the board of directors for Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa for over 12 years and most recently held the position of vice president of support services. He says he’s fortunate to be able to give back to such a worthwhile organization.
“I have a real passion for Boys & Girls Clubs,” Dickinson said. “When I first started volunteering, it was the biggest eye opener for me to be able to spend time with the kids and really see the Clubs’ mission in action. They give kids a safe place to go where they can build friendships and connect with positive role models and mentors that have a real impact on their lives. It’s inspiring.”
Dickinson’s move to the national board leaves a local vacancy that another NCMIC leader will fill. Chief Experience Officer Chick Herbert will step into Dickinson’s board position with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa in February.
Serving others is nothing new at NCMIC. The company encourages all employees, no matter position or department, to serve on the board of their favorite non-profits. To that end, NCMIC will contribute $2,500 to the organization on their behalf.
Currently, 22 NCMIC employees serve on area non-profits boards including: Animal Rescue League of Iowa, Junior Achievement, Capital City Pride, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the West Des Moines Library Friends Foundation, Dorothy’s House, Colon Cancer Foundation, Iowa Health Underwriter’s Foundation, Rock in Prevention, Blank Park Zoo, House of Mercy, Cystic Fibrosis, Camp Fire Heart of Iowa, Easterseals Iowa and YMCA of Greater Des Moines.
“NCMIC has prided itself on taking care of our own for over 75 years,” said NCMIC CEO Mike McCoy. “Serving non-profits—whether it’s with time or talent—is an extension of that vision that we are honored to support. Tony, Chick and all other NCMIC employees who serve the community by volunteering, are a reminder of the good that can come when we focus on creating a bright future for those around us.”
