Welcome to Region V!!

We are revving up to bring the National Society of Black Engineers’ (NSBE) 46th Annual Convention to you this year. Please join us at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX from March 25-29, 2020.

This year’s convention theme: “#NSBE46: Engineering the Revolution.”

Credit Policy:

Did you pay for a previous NSBE event and were not able to attend? If so, you may use that credit for a future NSBE event. Why not #NSBE46? Please Note: your credit will expire 12 months from the date of issuance. All current credits will expire on July 31, 2020 but can be used for events in 2021 that have been open for registration.

Membership Renewal:

Registration Selection:

If you are a current NSBE member, you DO NOT need to select your registration type. The system will automatically select it for you! For those registrants who are NSBE Jr. Chaperone/Advisors, Collegiate Chapter Advisor or Children between 3-7 years old, you will need to select your registration type on the first field on the registration page. Before paying for your registration, please be sure that all of your personal information and registration price is correct before finalizing your order.

Refund/Cancellation/Transfer Policy:

Attendees may cancel their registration and receive a refund up to 24 hours before the regular registration deadline ends on 2/29/2020. After the deadline, all cancellation requests will have their money credited to their NSBE Connect account. To cancel your registration and request reimbursement, please click here.

In the event you would like to transfer your registration to another member, you will need to fill out the transfer request form. Please note that you can only transfer your registration to another person who would share the same registration type (i.e. Collegiate to Collegiate or NSBE Jr. to NSBE Jr.).
