About Us– National BDPA (NBDPA), formerly known as Black Data Processing Associates, is a globalCS-STEM (Computer Science | Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics) IRS 501(c)(6)non-profit organization (NPO) promoting professional career advancement and corporategrowth for its stakeholders. Founded in 1975, NBDPA’s founders’ concern, which subsequentlywas shared with industry, was very few minorities in middle and upper management, low recruitmentand poor preparation of minorities for emerging technical positions. Moreover, an overall lack ofupward career mobility, little or no minority community engagements or outreach from industrycontinued to perpetuate these concerns into our 21st century.– BDPA-DC was founded and chartered by NBDPA in 1978 and incorporated in 1981 as an IRS501(c)(3) public charity. BDPA-DC celebrates its 35th Anniversary in 2013. BDPA-DCencourages expansion of technology and science programs, corporate social responsibility (CSR),community outreach, and service delivery to underserved and unserved communities within theNational Capital Region (NCR). Toward this end, our local chapter encourages support of ChapterInterest Groups (CIGs) which are designed to meet or exceed service delivery requirements wheregrowing technical trends and demographics ultimately can support a sustainable, viable and vibrantBDPA Corporate Advisory Council (CAC), Corporate Technology Council (CTC), and a CorporateLegislative Council (CLC) to effectively work with standing Chapter Committees and assigningsubject-matter experts (SMEs) and mentors from industry to Integrated CS-STEM and STEM-IC(Intel/Cyber) Project Team (IPT) leaders.– For 37 years NBDPA and local BDPA Chapters have helped advance technical careers fromthe classroom to the boardroom by hosting and participating in community oriented CS-STEM programs, workshops, expos, conferences, and CS-STEM outreach events. Washington,D.C. (BDPA-DC) and Northern Virginia (BDPA NoVA) chapters of BDPA remain committed toexcellence while providing a wide range of shared resources to members, corporate sponsors, smallbusiness owners, educational institutions and local communities within the National Capital Region(NCR).DCAdvancing Careers From The Classroom to The BoardroomSM
