Take Five: Kendall Norris (BDPA Middle Tennessee)

BDPA Middle Tennessee welcomed a new chapter president earlier this year. Kendall Norris (Deloitte) is working with his leadership team to take the chapter to the next level. Kendall took a moment to be part of our ongoing 'Take Five' Interview Series.

  1. How did you get involved with BDPA? - I have been involved for ~9 years and joined the organization while working at EDS, via corporate sponsorship.
  2. What is your favorite part of working with BDPA? - Working on, or developing, programs that encourage youth to look at IT career opportunities.
  3. What future evolution or change would you like to see in BDPA? - I would like to see our name, Black Data Processing Associates, changed to Black Data Professionals Association. I believe this change would take advantage of the current Big Data trend and enhance the brand image of BDPA, while keeping the acronym in place.
  4. Why should someone pay $100 membership dues to join BDPA? - I believe BDPA offers the best value in the industry for individuals seeking networking, professional development, entrepreneurial and volunteer opportunities.
  5. Any advice for people considering a donation to BETF? - There are many professionals in BDPA that are dedicated to the organization’s mission. A donation to BETF is an investment in the advancement of information technology and the future IT leaders.

Share some love with BDPA Middle Tennessee chapter president Kendall Norris!
