Dear Membership & Leaders,
My first NSBE event in Montgomery, Alabama, was a transformative experience. Surrounded by inspiring peers, I felt at home and driven to achieve greatness. The National Society of Black Engineers became my community, guiding me on the path to becoming an engineer. Now, as an Industrial Engineering senior at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, I still cherish the NSBE family I found that weekend. As I speak about my NSBE Community, I am honored to welcome you to the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) 50th Annual Convention, hosted by Region III, the Powerhouse Region, March 20-24, 2024, in Atlanta, GA.
At this year’s Convention, themed #NSBE50: Engineering CommUNITY, we are curating an experience focused on the following:
Personal CommUNITY: Emphasizing You and focusing on your unique stories, struggles, aspirations, and personal growth. Campus CommUNITY: Will provide guidance and resources for navigating the STEM curriculum, fostering mentorship opportunities, facilitating networking events with industry experts, and offering a platform to showcase research and innovation. Professional CommUNITY: Will support established Black engineers, scientists, and technologists who are looking to make significant strides in their respective careers.
The #NSBE50 Convention Planning Committee is focusing on building up our members by supporting and strengthening the relationship between all demographics of NSBE. We want you to leave Atlanta equipped with the tools to develop yourselves and positively impact your communities.
