Message from Atlanta Chapter President

BDPA Atlanta chapter president Carter Hill began his 2-year term on January 1, 2010. He shares his message to chapter members and stakeholders:

Happy New Year!!

It is the dawn of a new decade and a new administration for BDPA Atlanta chapter. I have been proud to serve our chapter for the last two years as its Vice President of Business Management. Working with our leadership team under our immediate past President Teresa Williams has been a rewarding experience for me. Teresa and the team greatly impressed me with their professionalism and dedication to BDPA’s mission. Now it is time to take up the charge and with your support, continue taking the chapter forward.

I look forward to 2010 as a year of opportunity and growth. Our leadership team has been working these past few months on new operational strategies. These strategies will work to maintain our foundation while expanding BDPA Atlanta’s programs to its professional members. Here are some highlights to expect in the coming year:
  • Our monthly meetings will be revamped to better fit the needs of our members by covering topics in these areas:

    1. IT Trends and Technology
    2. Business/Leadership Development
    3. Career Development

  • The expansion of our chapter newsletter incorporating technical articles from our ranks. These articles will provide an opportunity for our talented members to display their skills in the following areas:

    1. Project Management
    2. Business Analysis
    3. Software Development

  • Joint programs and workshops with other professional organizations. BDPA is a unique professional IT organization and we will be making our presence more prominent in the Atlanta area during 2010.

  • Collegiate mentoring programs with our partners DeVry University and Georgia State University.

  • A new technical curriculum for our HSCC program. Our Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship (SITES)program director Wes Williams has promised a change that will give our student members cutting edge skills.

The year 2010 will mark the 35th year of BDPA’s existence. In the spirit of our founder’s vision, I invite each of you to seriously consider becoming more active with our chapter. Through greater involvement by our members, our chapter can only grow better and stronger. We look forward to working with each and every one of you during the coming year, as we take our chapter to the next level.

Carter Hill, president
BDPA Atlanta Chapter
