R. Wayne Hicks is the executive director for the BDPA Education & Technology Foundation (www.betf.org), the non-profit fundraising arm for a national IT association.  Wayne served as BETF executive director in 1992-1993 and 2006-present. 
Wayne has been active leader in BDPA since he joined in 1988.  He served in virtually every leadership position on both the local and national level.  He is a 3-time winner of the ‘BDPA Presidents Award’.
