We received great ideas about how to approach our challenges in serving LA stakeholders.  Wayne reminded us that we represent every African American in this region.  We now can approach our program development, community involvement and sponsor relationships with a much grandeur vision and mission.  BDPA LA appreciates the time that Wayne took out to share with us and highly recommends other chapters to tap into his wealth of management, corporate, entrepreneurial and BDPA knowledge."
