Welcome to #NSBE45: Technical Professionals Conference

Dear NSBE Professionals,

Our Value Proposition Statement says “NSBE Professionals are the global brain trust of Black Engineers who provide top-tier talent, inspire the next generation of technical professionals and serve as a catalyst for transforming the culture of engineering.” Whether you’re a professional breaking through barriers, have attended a NSBE Professional Development Conference or are planning to  come to the Annual Convention to network with professionals who exemplify our value statement, it will all come together for you at the Technical Professionals Conference (TPC) at #NSBE45.

I invite you to join me for the TPC at #NSBE45: Explore. Engineer. Elevate. in Detroit, Mich., from March 27–31, 2019, and truly experience awe-inspiring NSBE Professionals. NSBE45’s goal is to Explore by engaging with the city and its culture, while enhancing the Engineer in all of us with a focus on technical workshops and certifications, and to Elevate the membership by celebrating their accomplishments.

To bring the Convention vision to life, the TPC, with its focus on Excellence, Mentoring, Networking, Training and Entertainment, will provide a series of workshops, events, meetings and training sessions to meet the need of every NSBE professional — from the career beginners to the more seasoned veterans. We want you to attend the TPC to learn, network and have a good time but also to positively impact the Detroit community with the top-caliber quality of the NSBE Professional.
The following are just a few of the signature events you won’t want to miss at the 2019 TPC:

Executive Mentoring Series

Executive Roundtables

Inside the Executive Suite Breakfast

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Workshops and Networking Events


I encourage you to make your way to Detroit, attend Convention, and actively participate in all it has to offer. I extend to you a special welcome to the Motor City and #NSBE 45: Explore. Engineer. Elevate. I look forward to seeing the many returning NSBE Professionals as well as the new attendees who will come to know and experience the excellence of the NSBE Professional. I truly believe NSBE45 will exceed your expectations!

NSBE Luv,

Frenae F. Smith
