I endeavor to continue the outstanding work Clarence has started by continuing the outstanding Student Information Technology Education & Scholarship program efforts; reconnecting with the Black Family Technology Awareness Week program; enabling additional scholarship opportunities; improving our monthly program meeting offerings; implementing value added professional development workshops; and building and strengthening both our corporate and professional networks. I also look forward to input from our members as to how our chapter can better serve their needs – and how they want to get involved in our mutual success. There are several vacancies on our board for leaders to step forward and join our team.
Working closely with both our VP-Finance and VP-Fund Raising, I will insure our chapter is fiscally sound and seek additional opportunities to expand our fundraising work and corporate sponsorship to insure the chapter has a steady flow of income to fund its programs, scholarships and services. We strongly encourage member participation in any chapter fundraising events or activities.
I will work to strengthen and grow our current partners and sponsors, working closely with our Corporate Advisory Council and will look to establish new relationships with Technology and New Media companies. BDPA Cincinnati strives to grow stronger as a premier resource for employers’ pool of talent for Technology jobs.
And of course, a short note about our members. BDPA chapter members are the lifeblood of our organization and we earnestly seek and request your active participation to help us expand and grow our organization to the next level. The sky is the limit when we put our collective mental capacity to work on our common goals. Together Everyone Achieves More! There are a still a few open positions on our board and we encourage members to consider joining the team. We have lofty goals and plenty of work to do. More hands make lighter the work load so we welcome and encourage your support. Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and participation.
The New Year is off to a great start. Wishing each and every one of you a blessed New Year!
Dalric Webb, president
