Dan Acheson has been the executive director of Drum Corps International since 1996. Previously he was the director of the Glassmen from 1986 until 1995 and played a major role in shaping the Glassmen into what they are today. He also marched with the Madison Scouts, including 1975 when they won their first DCI title.
With the Glassmen he always stressed a high degree of professionalism that many members carried with them off the field. Emphasizing that what you do in and out of that uniform reflects on the corps image.
