BDPA Milwaukee Chapter
Milwaukee, WI 43223
Carmen volunteered to be the chapter president until the chapter can conduct proper elections and install a full body of officers. Carmen’s leadership will be instrumental in taking the BDPA through a business transformation that will elevate and sustain the local chapter in Milwaukee. A major challenge facing BDPA Milwaukee chapter will be in attracting and retaining members. That challenge is being met head-on by the business and community leaders recruited by Carmen to grow the chapter.
Carmen’s vision and mission for the BDPA Milwaukee Chapter is simple:
- Transform to an efficient and effective chapter
- Bring awareness of the National BDPA organization
- Build membership and sponsor relationships
- Partner with community school systems ensuring students explore BDPA and its offerings.
