Our History

The Black Professional Alliance:

 

Prior to officially launching in October 1, 2009, Black Professional Alliance hosted networking receptions from 2004 – 2009.

The official launch was the culmination of new thoughts and possibilities to serve our member organizations.  In 2017, BPA is poised to build on a solid foundation of executing “Collaboration At Its Best.”  Our logo is a symbol of the black organizations under 1 umbrella … helping each other to rise higher to higher heights.  

BPA is the apex of many years of thoughts and efforts of one of our Founders and current Treasurer, Roger Davis.  His passion was to bring all of the black organizations together to create a united front in improving relationships within our community. Additionally, his thought is that this effort would reduce the amount of black professionals from relocating away from Austin.  The main event that took place in the past 4 years (prior to 2009) was the joint networking mixers.  Mr. Davis’ thought was to have a synchronized calendar amongst the black organizations as well, and now, with the launch of BPA, we are actively reaching this goal.
