BDPA New Jersey is a 501c3 non-profit organization established in 1981, originally known as the Northern New Jersey Chapter. The chapter’s membership rose to 125 members. The chapter saw a revitalization in 2000 and has been increasing in its presence as a vital organization for Northern and Central New Jersey ever since.
BDPANJ successfully launched its High School Computer Camp (HSCC) in 2001 and through the assistance of corporate sponsors and contributing members, has been able to send students to annual National BDPA Conferences to compete in the National High School Computer Competition since then. Students that complete the program are awarded college scholarships and are supported by the chapter in their efforts to gain grants and additional scholarships.
In 2003, BDPA New Jersey initiated Families in Technology Day, an annual event to increase the technology awareness in the surrounding communities. Last year in 2013 we celebrated our 10 year anniversary for the event! Our keynote speaker was Dr. Randal Pinkett, season 4 winner of NBC's 'The Apprentice'. Families in Technology Day is one of the marquee programs hosted by BDPANJ and it attracts almost 400 people each year. During the program the chapter provides several learning workshops (in the areas of finance, technology, and family health) and ends the day with a raffle where they give away over 100 laptops donated by one of its corporate partners.
Today, BPDA New Jersey continues to build its membership and to provide even more meaningful programs and opportunities for our members, our communities here in New Jersey and for our corporate and strategic partners.
