Communique, A BDPA Executive Committee Newsletter. It is an honor and a privilege to serve as your National President. I look forward to meeting each BDPA member on line and at our National Conference in Atlanta! I will certainly be there. Will you? Last February, the first quarter Board of Directors Meeting was held in "Silicon Valley", California. Appropriately named, it is a unique valley of amazing people, buildings and technology. Some amazing BDPA members played host for the meeting. I thank everyone in the Silicon Valley and Bay Area chapters for their efforts that made the Board meeting a memorable occasion. My gratitude to everyone that contributed to a successful meeting. As we start our 21st year, I sense that a fresh spirit has blown into BDPA.
