I am involved in fundraising for the BDPA Education and Technology Foundation (BETF). For over 40 years BDPA has been committed to the development of the careers of its membership and other interested parties in Information Technology and other IT related fields. Through its work, at no cost, with tens of thousands of students; its professional development programs and the ever-important opportunity for member professionals at all levels to develop the skills necessary to move to the next level on their career path, by learning and practicing those skills well before they become part of their career requirements. BDPA has been and continues to be committed to its mantra “From the classroom to the boardroom”! In order to continue and expand its efforts, BDPA needs your assistance.
