Take Five: Tyrone McKinney (BDPA New York)

BDPA provides its members with unique opportunities to develop leadership skills in a comforting environment. One person who has taken full advantage of the career-building opportunities in BDPA is Tyrone McKinney. Tyrone is currently serving as president of BDPA New York ... one of the largest chapters in the nation!

We recently asked Tyrone to participate in our Take Five interview series.

Tyrone McKinney
  1. How did you get involved with BDPA? I was asked to do an UNIX overview in 2000.
  2. What is your favorite part of working with BDPA? Educating our community on new and emerging technologies.
  3. What future evolution or change would you like to see in BDPA? I would like to see more new media and emerging technology companies support BDPA.
  4. Why should someone pay $100 membership dues to join BDPA? Your joining a like-minded community of technology enthusiasts and professionals.
  5. Any advice for people considering a donation to the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF)? Your donation will help to insure that more of our youngsters get involved in technology careers.

I encourage all of our readers to help Tyrone grow the programs, scholarships and services offered by BDPA New York chapter. One immediate way you can support is through a secure online donation to the chapter's HSCC scholarship program!
