Charlotte BDPA - 2011 Kickoff

We had the Charlotte BDPA 2011 kickoff meeting last night. I think it went very well. A little recap of what I remember off the top of my head.:

  • Diondre, with IBN Consulting, is interested in teaching folks a number of IT topics, his business has an office downtown and has been training folks for a few months now. Definitely want to keep in touch with this guy.

  • Sheila (spl?) - The Urban League has a new program, they are giving CISCO certifications to 11th and 12th graders. The programs are held at Phillip O'Berry. Sounds like there are some nice perks with the program as well. (Laptop, software and such). She needs IT professionals to come by and speak about the career. I told her to count me in. If you know of anyone or are interested, reach out to me.

  • 2 BDPA members recently moved to new roles within thier current companies. You know I love to hear news like this.

  • The Charlotte BDPA 2011 calendar is full of education and training opportunities for adult professionals. A bit of a change in focus for our chapter but a refreshing one.

  • Charles - With APEX has a few development, PM and BA job opportunities for anyone who is looking.

All in all, it was a good meeting and better networking. I'm looking forward to our next meeting in Feb.

Hope you are starting the year off right.

Thank you for sharing insights on the Charlotte chapter program meeting! Our meeting here in Cincinnati got snowed out last night (sigh)....

I will be in Charlotte on Feb 11. I hope we get a chance to hook up!
