Coleman’s Story
 
Abused as a child, Coleman was homeless at the age of fifteen. Nonetheless, he put himself through an Ivy League education. When he was twenty, he rescued his mother after her five years of illegal incarceration as an Oklahoma civil rights pioneer. He himself spent two years as a prisoner of conscience for opposing the war in Vietnam. Then - day by day, year by year - he rose to the pinnacle of his chosen profession.
 
An MPI member since 1979, Coleman, CMM credits MPI with his professional success. In 1985 he launched one of the first software companies in the meetings industry, which he ran for twenty-five years, providing computing solutions throughout the world. He served seven years on the MPI International Board, and was International President of MPI in 1993-94. He is the originator of the CMM program, was a professor of hospitality management at Roosevelt University in the 1990s, was named one of the top ten executives in the travel industry, as well as one of the top ten executives in the meetings industry. He was MPI’s International Supplier of the Year in 2004.
 
Now he lives in the country outside Mineral Point, with his husband of twenty-six years.
 
Coleman’s memoir - SPOKE: A Mother, A Son, Civil Rights, Vietnam - won the 2014 International Book Award for best memoir/auto-biography.

Community Outreach

THE YMCA OF DANE COUNTY is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.


With a focus on YOUTH DEVELOPMENT, HEALTHY LIVING and SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, strengthening communities is our cause. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.


At the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away for the inability to pay. We recognize that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.


Gifts for the YMCA

  • New books suitable for children ages 6 months – 5 years
  • New toys for the daycare for ages 6 months – 6 years – learning toys that help prepare kids for Kindergarten
  • New soccer balls, basketballs for the young sports stars
