Message from Philadelphia Chapter President

BDPA Philadelphia is the back-to-back defending 'Chapter of the Year'. I remain convinced that one reason for their success is the open communication style of BDPA Philadelpha chapter president Monique Berry.

Here is this month's message from Monique to her chapter members, sponsors, entrepreneurs, educational institutions and communty:

It's Spring!!!!!

Well, we have made it through another winter in the great city of Philadelphia. March 20th marked the start of spring and so we will all be busy getting the yards in shape, the boats in the water, and preparing to enjoy the summer.

Our March program meeting was a good time for all and I would like to thank Professor Leann Erickson, for an enjoyable and informative presentation. BDPA member Patricia Debnam remarked "I really learned a lot at the meeting Wednesday night. LeAnn Erickson was a very interesting guest. 'Top Secret Rosies' is something I never knew about". We could not have had this event without the hard work of Byron Mayes, VP of Professional Services and our co-sponsor CIGNA.

Please mark your calendars for April 15. Guest speaker Tyrone Harrison will discuss the 'Multigenerational Workplace' Be sure to register so that we can order food and seating for this event.

This month the BDPA Philadelphia Executive Board will meet for our quarterly retreat. During this time we will review our 'Balanced Score Card' to ensure we are on track to achieve our goals for the 2009 calendar year. We will look back at the first quarter and make changes to ensure our members of the continued commitment of the Executive Committee.

To all members, I encourage each of you to supplement your education, knowledge, and skills. With the rapid pace of change in our industry, a successful IT career requires not only deep and constantly updated technology expertise but also an equally rich background in business. You must be knowledgeable enough to help your organization around any unique problems it may have.

Your continued support and dedication to BDPA has been a mainstay these past few months. Please know how grateful I am to all members of the BDPA family. As we carry on this essential work to make the Philadelphia Chapter stronger, I hope you will take time to share your thoughts with me.

Have a Great Month.
Monique F. Berry, President
BDPA Philadelphia Chapter

Our BDPA stakeholders in Philadelphia are blessed to have such a warm and eloquent leader. We have BDPA leaders like Monique all over the nation. My hope is that they are as committed to open communication as Monique.

What are your thoughts about Monique's April 2009 message?
