BDPA Chapter Interest Groups (CIGs) Now Forming in Maryland and Virginia

Washington, D.C. - BDPA-DC encourages expansion of technology and science programs, corporate outreach, and service delivery to underserved and emerging communities within the National Capital Region (NCR).  Chapter Interest Groups (CIGs) are designed to meet or exceed our service delivery requirements where growing technology trends and demographics ultimately will support viable and vibrant BDPA Chapters. New and current BDPA Members along with their associates simply join existing BDPA Chapters to establish a CIG which serves their respective county, city, or community. Upon National Board of Directors (NBOD) approval of a CIG's application, a new BDPA Chapter is launched.
