Message from Philadelphia Chapter President

BDPA Philadelphia is the 2nd largest chapter in the nation. Here is the message sent by chapter president Monique Berry to her stakeholders this month.

As I sat down to write this newsletter, the blank computer screen kept staring back at me. It wasn't a very friendly look either!! No thoughts were coming easily. My attention kept drifting to the window outside. I could see my neighbors in their yard planting flowers, cutting grass, pruning hedges, flowers popping out of the ground, some already past their prime, and the trees full of leaves instead of bare branches. The change of season was bringing a new start to everything around me.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, it is never to late to start changing the direction of your career or to set career goals. Attending Chapter meetings or helping a fellow IT professional get involved in the Chapter can help you and help the Chapter realize the goal of retaining and increasing membership!

Volunteer for one of the many opportunities we offer to get involved in the local community. Advance in your profession by attending the National BDPA Technology Conference in Raleigh this August. The Conference will be a good source of information for some, a good refresher for others and great networking for everyone. We hope everyone attends!

The rest of the newsletter is full of good information, so I won't keep you any longer. Enjoy the nice weather and the longer days!

Monique Berry, President
BDPA Philadelphia Chapter

Would you care to share any feedback for Monique?
