2004 National BDPA Annual Report

  1. 1. BDPA is a global member focused technology organization that delivers programs and services for the professional well-being of its stakeholders.
  2. 2. Letter from the National BDPA President It is with great pride that we release the 2004 National BDPA Annual Report. We respectfully dedicate the report to our predecessors on whose shoulders we stand and to our peers who continue to work to fulfill the mission of the BDPA Information Technology Thought Leaders. BDPA is a service organization that advances the careers of IT profes- sionals, entrepreneurs and students from the classroom to the boardroom through education, mentoring, services and business networking. Aside from being a powerful voice for African Americans in the IT industry, BDPA enhances innovation, technical skills, busi- ness savvy and personal growth in each of its chapter cities on a daily basis. The BDPA organization has been providing programs and services in this country since 1976. However, in the past three years (2002-2004), membership growth has reached its highest level ever. More importantly, our strategic plans call for us to grow BDPA to 15,000 by August 2007. BDPA was blessed in 2004 with 116 corporate sponsors. That was more than double the past number of corporate sponsors. Our hope is that you will enjoy this annual report. This booklet will become a cherished, tangi- ble reminder of the great people and efforts that were on display in the first year of my term as national president. Kudos to Gina Billings, Rick Giraudy, Milt Haynes, Vercilla Brown and the other officers of National BDPA who worked so hard in producing the results in 2004 that are doc- umented in this publication. I challenge all that read this report to look within. I challenge each of you to work with BDPA to support our programs and services on a corporate and individual level. It is time that we bring BDPA to each and every student, teacher, IT professional and entrepreneur where he or she lives and works. The Board of Directors and officers of BDPA stand ready to assist you. R.

Black Data Processing Associates, Inc., began in 1975 in Philadelphia, Pa. Today, as one of the world's leading technology focused organizations, it has nearly 30 years of commitment "to the development of minority resources in the information technology industry."

Sixty percent are IT profes- sionals (e.g., software developers, business analysts, testers, project managers, etc.), 25 percent are high school and college students, 10 percent are entrepreneurs and consultants, and 5 per- cent are managers and senior executives. The national organization, with a following of teachers, university professors and HR recruiters, represents all age groups and income levels. Members are geographically dispersed across the United States with an international following in Canada, England, France and Ghana.

Through BDPA, members receive critical information on technology trends, business skills, management training and IT career skills development. We are widely known as an organization of skilled technologists doing the right things for "Securing One's Future Through Technology." The technically diverse membership of African-American information technology professionals and students gain positive exposure and develop to their highest potential, while BDPA provides value to its corporate investors, strategic partners and clients.
