Can BDPA and GiveCamp Find a Way to Work Together?

Ricardo Wilkins is a blogger and BDPA Columbus chapter member. He recently had a blog post titled, 'Volunteers Are Kool' in which he introduced his readers to an event taking place around the nation called GiveCamp.

GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where technology professionals from designers, developers and database administrators to marketers and web strategists donate their time to provide solutions for non-profit organizations. Since its inception in 2007, the GiveCamp program has provided benefits to over 150 charities, with a value of developer and designer time exceeding $100,000 in services!

Many BDPA chapters seek ways to provide programs and services for their IT professionals members. How 'kool' would it be for BDPA chapters that are co-located with GiveCamp weekend events to partner with one another?

Is GiveCamp an idea you would like to see your BDPA chapter explore? What say u?
