Message from BDPA Cincinnati Chapter President (August 2015)

Dalric Webb

As we turn our attention towards the STRONG team of students we are taking to the 37th Annual National BDPA Conference in Washington DC in two weeks, let me take just a moment to offer another acknowledgement to the 2015 Future Leader Award recipients, two of whom are our very own Yaw Asante and Mouhamadou Guisse! Photos from the event are viewable on our chapter website in the photo gallery section. You can also view the event program guide.

Speaking of the BDPA Technology Conference, have you registered? Are you going? Are you planning to attend the career fair? How about the professional development workshops? Are you excited about the sponsors and vendors that are supporting this event? Did you know Retired General Colin Powell is the featured speaker this year? Think your personal and professional networking could get a boost out of attendance at this annual premier technology conference? Did you know the focus of this year’s conference is YOU! Specifically “The upcoming technology conference will be focused on how you as an individual in the technology field can be a part of this evolution and embrace the current and upcoming digital landscape”. I do hope to see you there. This is THE place to be the week of August 17th.

As I was reading through my FREE copy of Diversity-in-Action last night, it came to my mind that perhaps all the chapter members of the LARGEST BDPA chapter in the nation were not aware that this free subscription was one of MANY member benefits? Did you receive your complimentary copy of this publication at the mailing address you provided or that you have in your online profile? If not, please contact our VP Membership Management at to make sure we have your proper contact information. This benefit is just one of MANY benefits of your BDPA membership. Take a look at the BDPA membership benefits on the national website.

I do hope to you can join us at this month’s program meeting where we have a dynamic speaker leading the interactive conversation on “The Cloud”.  Hope to see you there!

We have a few more openings on our board of volunteers. Won’t you consider joining this dynamic team? We can use your support in helping others (and yourself) advance their careers “from the classroom to the boardroom”. Will you consider applying your skills, professionalism, and sense of community to the task of strengthening the digital thought leaders of tomorrow through the BDPA organization? Visit our chapter website at and let me know which opportunity best fits your passion.

Looking forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!

Dalric Webb, President
BDPA Cincinnati Chapter
