Top 10 BDPA Chapters (Membership, Oct 2009)

It is difficult to grow the membership of a BDPA chapter with some of the challenges faced in our community. The 45 BDPA chapters in BDPA-nation average 50 members (no change from last month).

Congratulations to BDPA Triangle chapter (president, Rick Leggett) for setting a new chapter membership record high (195) this month ... breaking their previous high of 189 (Sep 2009). Anyone care to guess whether or not Rick can take his chapter over the '200 member' milestone next monthly?

BDPA New Jersey (president, Coram Rimes) regained its spot in the 'Top 10' for the first time since July 2009. They bumped their neighbors from New York (president, Judaea Lane) down to 11th place.

The top ten chapters in terms of membership as of 10/1/2009 are:

  1. Chicago - (Current and past chapter presidents shown in photo)
  2. Triangle - (all-time chapter record high, 195 members)
  3. Philadelphia
  4. Atlanta
  5. Richmond
  6. Detroit
  7. Washington DC
  8. Cincinnati
  9. Dallas
  10. New Jersey - (jumped one place this month)
The first five (5) chapters on this list are in the BDPA Century Club with at least 100 members. BDPA Chicago chapter tops the list with 509 members!

BDPA Education & Technology Foundation provides funding to support the programs and services carried out by these chapters at local level. Our hope is that you will consider making a donation to BETF this year. You can securely donate online or you can give BETF a call on (513) 284-4968 to discuss your pledge offline.
