DCCCA begins our new fiscal year with a new executive committee heading the Board of Directors. Committee members serve a three year term and this executive committee brings over 35 years of combined experience at DCCCA to their positions. The committee is now headed by President Nikki White, James Otten Dentistry, and includes Vice President Ernesto Hodison, Capitol City Bank; Treasurer Jeff Davis, University of Kansas Endowment Association (retired); Secretary Krystal Butell, Berry Plastics (retired); Pat Slabaugh, Central Bank of the Midwest, and Rodney Bishop, M.D.
DCCCA’s Board of Directors meets monthly and is responsible for fiscal oversight and accountability, legal oversight, purchase and sale of physical assets (property), agency policy approval, risk management, and hiring and evaluating the chief executive officer.
“I am honored to be leading the board in a new era at DCCCA full of great partnerships and new opportunities. The need for our services are greater than ever; it is with these collaborations we continue to make significant change and improve lives in the communities we serve”, says Nikki White, “Leadership throughout the organization and at the board level is very strong and everyone is willing to work together to do what it takes to reach excellent outcomes and be a model for other programs across the country.”
DCCCA coordinates programs across the Midwest to provide behavioral health prevention and treatment, recruitment, training, and support of foster homes, and traffic safety education and resources. We also provide evaluation research to their programs and partners.
