PCI Conference Chair Welcome

Join us at NSBE49!

Greetings, future engineers!


We are very excited about seeing you all at the 2023 PCI Conference, hosted in NSBE’s Region V, in Kansas City, Missouri!


This year’s Convention will allow our NSBE Jr. students to connect and engage with all demographics of our membership like never before. We strive for our students to connect with NSBE Collegiate and Professional members, NSBE’s regional and national boards, NSBE Board of Corporate Affiliates (BCA) Partners, local community leaders, and other NSBE Jr. students from across the regions, for an exciting agenda including competitions, engaging hands-on workshops, fun community activities and tours around the city and Convention Center, all to help you Tech the Future.


Students, you will have the opportunity to display your talents in a variety of competitions across all age groups and showcase your innovation and share your knowledge with your peers and professionals alike. The goal is to have workshops that will Engage the Next Generation, who are our NSBE Jr. members, allowing for more collaboration and creative approaches to shape the future of STEM and focus on your mental health to help Manage Wellness of our youngest members.


I know you see the little Easter eggs placed within this message to help guide you to the theme of #NSBE49. But just in case you didn’t catch it, the #NSBE49 theme is all about our members’ discovering who they are in STEM. The goal is to make sure they leave #NSBE49 with that answer. Without further delay, I will tell you that the theme is “I AM S.T.E.M.: Succeed Professionally, Tech the Future, Engage the Next Generation and Manage Wellness.”


Please know that everyone on the Convention Planning Committee is beyond excited to bring you a truly life-changing, career eye-opening experience in Kansas City next March. Please feel free to reach out and contact us at cpcpci@nsbe.org with any questions or concerns, and be sure to follow our social media for all news and information leading up to the Convention!
