“You are more than 1.3 million strong, and from all over the world… You are scientists, engineers, inventors and patent-holders… You are famous (and not so famous) performers and artists…. You are businesspeople, teachers, administrators, parents, and students…”

California Alumni

Whatever Destination Imagination (DI) has helped you become, we hope that you (and now your children) are still active in the program! We encourage you to catch up on what’s happening with DI. Share some great memories, appraise at a Tournament, get involved, stay involved, and help Destination Imagination keep the creativity flowing.

Over 200,000 DI alumni come from California, and whether you were in the CALDI program, our older CAOM program, or just find yourself in California we hope you will return and give back to our creative community!

Our CALDI DI Alumni are a huge part of our program and we are so excited to help you stay involved in whatever way works best for you! Our alumni members serve as Appraisers, Challenge Masters, Team Managers, and tournament volunteers. They are easily identified by their CALDI Alumni-RED-Tie and their contagious excitement for Destination Imagination.

Stay Involved!

As a DI alum, we hope you still feel engaged in the DI community—but we understand if you’ve gone off to college or no longer live in your home Affiliate, you may not know how to get connected to your local DI scene. We can help!

The CALDI Alumni Relations Coordinators is Kathy McBride. She can help you find a community of DI volunteers wherever you’re located. They can connect you to Regional leadership and answer questions about getting involved as a volunteer. Contact Kathy HERE.

We also love to hear from our high school seniors so we can help with the exciting transition from participant to alumni member!
