Take Five: Jeff Cunningham (South Florida)

It is important for BDPA to maintain a strong presence in Miami, Florida. We rely on BDPA South Florida chapter president Jeff Cunningham to provide the leadership necessary to recruit and retain members. I am grateful to Jeff Cunningham for sharing his insights in our Take Five interview series.

  1. How did you get involved in working with BDPA? - I have been a member of BDPA since 1993. I was a member of the BDPA Memphis Chapter for most of my history with this organization and a few years ago, made the move to the sun and surf of South Florida where I began to restart the local chapter.

  2. What is the most rewarding aspect of working with BDPA? - BDPA has afforded me the best opportunity to mix, mingle, and network with some of the top Black IT professional from around the country. This is the only organization that can say this.

  3. Tell us about a defining moment in your life? - Being alive to see the Inauguration of the first Black President of the United States.

  4. Who is your hero and why? - No real answer for this one.

  5. Any advice for people considering donation to BETF? - Understand and appreciate the role of BETF and how they utilize your donations for the betterment of BDPA.

What are your thoughts about BDPA presence in Florida? Any insights from Jeff strike a chord in you?
