Message from Cincinnati Chapter President

BDPA Cincinnati was 1st Runner-up for Chapter of the Year for the second year in a row. I am a long-time member of the BDPA Cincinnati chapter. As such, I am proud to see the current chapter president, Janice Lee, reaching out to her stakeholders on a regular basis with monthly newsletter, monthly program meeting and upcoming annual banquet.

I had a chance to socialize with Janice and many of the Cincinnati chapter members this past weekend at the annual cookout. I played game called 'cornhole' for the first time in my life.

Anyhow, here is message that Janice shared with her members, sponsors and community earlier this month:

Greetings Friends,

The National BDPA organization recognized the Cincinnati Chapter for the 2nd consecutive year, as 1st Runner-up as Chapter of the Year. The Cincinnati Chapter beat out 49 chapters with the exception of the Philadelphia Chapter for the 2007 – 2008 Chapter of the Year award.

The Cincinnati Chapter was also recognized for the 2nd consecutive year as having “the” premiere professional services for adults and student membership. We accepted the National Professional Service Award.

What does it take to earn National BDPA recognition? The National BDPA has 50 chapters. The Chapter of the Year Award is an award bestowed upon an individual chapter and its members for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the mission and objectives of the National Association for the previous year. This award is a combination of four awards (Membership, Management, Professional Service and Community Service).

FACT: The Cincinnati Chapter has over a decade of continued success honored by National BDPA four times as Chapter of the Year and four times as 1st Runner-up Chapter of the Year…and more.
