Dear BDPA Members and Friends,

Many thanks for your incredible support, commitment, and service to BDPA over the years. Our community of students, professionals, and colleagues are so appreciative of your leadership in providing much needed programs, professional development, and education in STEM-related areas, and we are grateful for the opportunity to convene again in person for the 44th Annual BDPA National Conference in Atlanta, GA.

This year’s conference, entitled Honoring our Legacy, Accelerating the Pace, will bring us together from August 18 – 20, 2022, with a Chairman’s Reception for HBCU students on Wednesday, August 17, 2022.

This is a timely opportunity for us to grow BDPA and usher it into the next level of impacting the world. We encourage you to join with us in the planning efforts, and we hope you’ll consider the following:

  1. Register for Early Bird rates! The best rates are available between now and June 1 here: REGISTER HERE. You can purchase registrations for your chapter now (and take advantage of these early rates) and identify the individual attendees at a later date.
  2. Submit a session proposal! We’d love to hear from experts across the board about best practices to inform our collective work. Consider sending a brief form here: SUBMIT YOUR BRIEF. The deadline is June 13, 2022, and we hope you’ll submit a form soon – we’d love to hear from you!
  3. Reserve your hotel room! We have made arrangements with The Westin Peachtree Plaza. Be sure to make your reservations here: RESERVE YOUR ROOM

We are grateful to you for your continued support and commitment to the mission of BDPA, and we look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
