Founded in 1975, National BDPA (NBDPA) has partnered with industry and academia to support technical workforce requirements. NBDPA's Washington, D.C. Chapter was founded in 1978 by Norman Mays. It was the third NBDPA Chapter to receive its charter to help locally bridge digital divides and broaden opportunities for underserved communities in IT and related technical fields of interest.
