As we begin our celebration of Black Family Technology Awareness Week, I would like to encourage each member of our chapter to get engaged with community efforts in and around your communities. Together we can accomplish miraculous works!
Your BDPA Cincinnati chapter is strong and growing, but we still need more hands on the oars of this mighty ship as we sail towards the great destinations of giving back, networking, professional development, leadership, and mentoring. Please consider taking either a role on the board or volunteering your time to assist with the many areas where we are working 'from the classroom to the boardroom'. You can view a list of the open board positions here.
We have a lot going on in the weeks ahead!
- February 19, 2014 - We will hold our monthly program meeting on this date. Please sign up to attend this highly interactive and informative session. This month we have the pleasure and honor of hosting Christopher Bomar (president and founder, Boomarang Data Backup and Security) who will lead the discussion on Cyber Security. At this meeting we will also honor the chapters’ 2013 High School Computer Competition team.
- Feb 22, 2014 - Our youth technology computer camp kicked off on January 11th with almost 20 high school students focused on a STEM based curriculum. We are inviting the entire Cincinnati community to visit our computer camp to see our young people in action! We will be joined on this day by a leader from Procter & Gamble who is recruiting for this year's Resident Scholar Program.
- How is your BDPA membership working out for you?
- How can we improve the value of your membership?
Finally, I encourage you to take a few minutes to look around on BDPA.org. In particular, take a look at the BDPA Cincinnati Chapter pages. Are they informative, relevant, accurate, and professional? What are your thoughts on improving the look and feel of our web presence?
