Message from Columbus Chapter President

We are very proud to introduce our BETF-Blog readers to Reggie Hillery, the new president of our BDPA chapter in Columbus OH. He shared a message this week with his chapter members, sponsors and supporters. Here is what he had to say:


Last week was tough on everyone in Central Ohio. On behalf BDPA, I hope and pray everyone is okay and safe.

Despite the challenges of the power outages, we held our Information Exchange meeting last week at TechColumbus. It was an awesome meeting and we hope to continue our relationship with them by having another meeting in the near future. The knowledge shared was invaluable, as a result we uploaded the presentation to our website. If you are an IT entrepreneur or aspiring IT entrepreneur, TechColumbus can help you with funding, coaching and mentoring.

Another exciting event that took place last week, our very own Andre Young taped an interview on Tei Street's Talk Show program 'Education is Everybody's Business'. Andre provided information on our upcoming High School Computer Competition (HSCC) training program. In addition, one of our previous HSCC student's Jacob Wilson provided insight from a studentsʼ perspective. The episode aired this past Saturday and will continue to air on the local government public access channel. We will upload a copy of the program soon to our website.

As you see the BDPA Columbus chapter is reaching out into the community and providing outstanding programs for our members. Your continued participation is the key to our success in expanding to new heights.

Our next Information and Exchange meeting is scheduled for October 30th. Save the date and check the website for more information!

Reggie Hillery, President
BDPA Columbus Chapter
(614) 746-1963

Please take a moment to welcome Reggie to his new leadership position! With any luck we will have a presidential profile posted on Reggie in the near future.
