Top 10 BDPA Chapters (Membership, Feb 2012)

We are pleased to see that BDPA membership numbers have grown since our first update of the year in January 2012.  One reason for the membership growth is the substantially increased level of communication that is coming from our national and regional leadership.  The leaders are focused on delivery of programs and services that advance the careers of African Americans in the IT industry.

Membership is the lifeblood of any organization. The 45 BDPA chapters in BDPA-nation average 28 members (up one from Jan 2012).

BDPA Chicago chapter remains the largest chapter in the nation for the 58th month in a row. The chapter membership grew over the past month as it celebrated with its annual awards banquet. Perhaps it is time for all of BDPA to figure out what they are doing in Chicago to recruit and retain members?!

The top ten chapters in terms of membership as of February 2012 are:
  1. Chicago, Midwest Region
  2. Atlanta, South Region
  3. Philadelphia, North Region
  4. Cincinnati, Midwest Region
  5. New York, North Region
  6. New Jersey, North Region
  7. Dallas, South Region
  8. Los Angeles, West Region
  9. Charlotte, South Region
  10. Washington DC, North Region
We now have two chapters -- BDPA Chicago and BDPA Atlanta -- are in the BDPA Century Club with at least 100 members.

Leave a comment if your chapter isn't listed above. We're happy to tell you where your BDPA chapter is ranked if you want. In the meantime, we would love to know why did you join BDPA? Why do you renew your membership in BDPA each year? Perhaps you can share the answer to either of those questions in the COMMENTS area.
