The charter group of visionaries began the search for chapter support by targeting technology-based individuals in the City of Cincinnati. The strategy was to approach individuals affiliated with the Fortune-500 based companies in the area. The discussions with these corporations focused on the needs and potential value of such an organization as BDPA.
The discussions with the Cincinnati business community were successful. Everett Gregory, Neal Johnson, Brenda Johnson, Charles Cooper and Gina Billings were delighted with the BDPA Cincinnati chapter concept and what it would bring to the African American community. They made the official request that National BDPA accept a charter as a new chapter. The charter was approved in December 1989 ... and BDPA Cincinnati chapter was officially formed.
