The BDPA Insider - July 23, 2010

Blog Talk Radio Live! July 28th at the National BDPA Conference

Mark your calendars!

BlogTalkRadio co-hosts Jacqueline Lawson (Cozzas) and Milt Haynes (National BDPA) will bring you BlogTalk Radio Live on Wednesday, July 28th at 12:30 pm EST, during the 32nd Annual National BDPA Conference.

African Americans sometimes underestimate the impact of technology on shaping the course of history. The show’s segments will include short interviews of senior BDPA officials to discuss their vision and dream for the organization. Internet Radio brings an added technology feature to the conference. It is a format that allows for real-time dialogue over the phone and in chat rooms anyone can access on the Internet. These Internet Radio interviews will provide multiple perspectives that are sure to appeal to anyone interested in the future of African Americans in IT.

Everything you ever wanted to know about an African American technology organization, but were afraid to ask!

The program agenda for the Internet radio show:
  1. Historical BDPA – Advancing careers for 35 years
  2. Transforming While Performing ... As We Take BDPA To The Next Level
