BDPA expects hefty crowds in Philadelphia

'We’re really looking forward to having our meeting in Philadelphia,” says Monique Berry, who is a project manager with the Vanguard Group (Valley Forge, PA) and BDPA’s national president elect and VP of business management. “Sixty percent of the U.S. population is within a twenty-four hour drive so we expect even more people than we had last year in Raleigh.”

Last year President Obama appointed the nation’s first chief technology officer. That, says Viola Maxwell-Thompson, executive director of the Information Technology Senior Management Forum (ITSMF), is “a clear indication of the importance IT is playing in the world. There are nuances to how information needs to be disseminated and displayed. African Americans have that knowledge, we have that experience; we should be a part of that effort.”
