Last year the second Affiliate member accepted by the Door & Operator Dealers Association (DODA) in 1994 ceased operation. Darrell Munchel, President, and the IGDOA Board of Directors Luckie Jennings, Lou Fortunato, Cary Crosby and Ed Kikendall, voted to dissolve the organization due to dwindling membership and participation after a notice to members did not bring forward volunteers necessary to sustain the organization. IGDOA turned its assets over to the IDA Scholarship Foundation in December 2016. Jerry Reynolds, DODA President from 1986 – 87, was from Indianapolis and was a driving force in the organization of IGDOA, along with his wife Barb Reynolds. Jerry's efforts led to organizational meetings in 1990 and 1991 and the association was formed in 1991 with 28 members and the mission of assisting and educating the door dealer. David Taylo was elected President and Jerry Reynolds was named Chairman of the Board. Two years later IGDOA was recognized by DODA President Jack Graf as the second Affiliate member; the Michigan Door and Operator Dealers Association (MIDODA) being the first Affiliate member. The first annual golf outing was held in September 1992 and continued until 2015. Educational programs and/or conferences were held on an annual basis. The IDA/IGDOA conference in 2000 drew more than 200 participants. In more recent years, a popular event was the Annual Mini- Expo at Indiana Downs, which was held from 2006 – 2014. Records from IGDOA were turned over to IDA recently, and following is a listing of the men and women who served IGDOA as President over the years. Apologies to anyone who was missed. • 1990 - Jerry Reynolds, Acting President and Barb Reynolds, Acting Secretary/Treasurer • 1991 – David Taylo, President; Jerry Reynolds, Chairman of the Board • 1996- 1997 - Cindy Lucas Givens, President • 1998- 1999 - Bob Montgomery, President • 2000- 2002 - Dick Jenks, President • 2003- 2016 - Darrell Munchel, President Darrell has been assisted over the years by Carol Munchel and Ann Fuller, Administrative Assistant. Jerry Reynolds passed away on June 13, 1995 and the DODA Heritage and Nominating Committee created the Jerry R. Reynolds Volunteer Leadership Award which recognizes persons who have demonstrated dedicated service as a volunteer. Jim Lett was the first person to receive the Jerry R. Reynolds Volunteer Service Award (DODA) in 1966.
