Message from Philadelphia Chapter President

As May draws to a close, I am grateful for our sponsors and members that continue to support the BDPA mission. I challenge you all to get involved and volunteer your time. Giving back feels good and right. It also is a key ingredient for your personal and professional growth.

If you attended our last program meeting then you heard my membership recruitment challenge. I ask that each member recruit at least one new member by August 31 2010. Encourage people you know to join the BDPA Philadelphia family.

Please accept my invitation to join us in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection by registering for the 32nd Annual National BDPA Conference, July 28-31, 2010 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, Philadelphia, PA.

This year's conference will feature 4 executive panels and over 50 high impact workshops for the technical and business professional as well as entrepreneurial workshops, informative college events, and exceptional plenary sessions.

This year's conference will also feature the 25th High School Computer Competition and the IT Showcase!

If you have been too busy to keep up with the latest trends in our industry, we have lined up workshops led by industry-leaders from JPMorgan Chase, Vanguard, DeVry University, Allstate, Quest Diagnostics, Eli Lilly and more.
Reserve your room today by contacting the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown at 1-800-266-9432 and ask for the BDPA (Black Data Processing Associates) rate or register online. Reserve your room before June 14, 2010 to receive the exceptional Deluxe Room rate of $159.00.

Hayward West, President
BDPA Philadelphia Chapter
