BDPA Boston-MetroWest Chapter was chartered in January of 1989. Our overall mission is to be a network of minorities who share information to help professionals grow and participate in Information Technology trends, provide education to develop leadership skills and perform community services to provide a positive influence for the constituencies we serve.  Whether you are a potential Corporate Partner, Member, Media Representative or a Friend of BDPA we extend an invitation to you to review the Information on our Web Page and participate in our activities. At BDPA we are committed to your success in Information Technology.







As promised in January, the Boston MetroWest Chapter of the BDPA signed a Memorandum of Understandings (MOUs) with EMC Black EMC Affinity Group (BEAG) and the Northeastern Black Engineering Student Society (BESS). With these agreements, the Chapter is beginning to work on specific implementation plans for these agreements. I will provide a summary of our implementation plan when they become finalize.

I represented the Chapter by participating in the Youth Empowerment Summit (YES) conference sponsored by Carole Copeland Thomas. Computer workshops were created and implemented on 16 February, with about 80 students from the local schools. Also the chapter, represented by myself and Danna Sturdivant, spoke to over twenty High School kids at a conference sponsored by BESS, about the High School Computer Competition coming in July. As a result, we got several students interested in participating.

At our February Program meeting we had Dr. William Tiga Tita present the topic "Impact of Electronic Commerce on Globalization- lessons learned in managing emerging markets' distance learning programs". In March, we will have a presentation by Joel Sapp on the topic "Social Networking and Collaboration at Work".

In closing, I am asking everyone to:

  • Renew your membership or
  • Join our chapter and
  • Volunteer to help with our programs and Events
  • Encourage more corporate sponsors

I hope to meet everyone soon!

BDPA Boston Metro-West Chapter President
