BDPA South Florida Chapter was at a crossroads earlier this year. The chapter activity slowed down considerably over the past year or so. The chapter either needed a new leader to emerge or face possible end of BDPA in that city. Jeff Cunningham rose to the challenge when he agreed to become acting president pending elections.

Jeff's wants to move BDPA South Florida chapter in three specific areas over the coming weeks and months:
  1. Increase membership by reconnecting with past members
  2. Build strategic alliances with other professional, technical, business and member organizations
  3. Build a BDPA presence on the campus of Florida Memorial University
Jeff's favorite quote: "Watch your mouth kid, or you'll find yourself floating home" - His Mom!

His favorite BDPA memory: "Attending my first BDPA National Conference many years ago and seeing so many people of color in Technology."
