November 16th – 18th, Bethesda MD
Hello Region II Family!
My name is Kayla Mumford and I’m your 2018 Fall Regional Conference (FRC) Chairperson. On behalf of the Region II Executive Board (REB), I would like to give you a very warm welcome to grow and fellowship with us from November 16th through 18th at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel in Bethesda, MD for this year’s Region II Fall Regional Conference. The theme for this year is “R2FRC: Explore. Engineer. Elevate.”
As a REB, we have carefully crafted a great conference that will give you the tools to explore your community, engineer solutions to tomorrow’s problems, and elevate yourself and fellow NSBE members around you. We want this conference to be a culturally relevant experience that teaches you how to be HYPE (Help Your People Excel) through valuable interactions across different NSBE demographics and professional development. Our goal is to make sure you understand your impact as the student-led movement that the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) needs in order to thrive. When you leave Region II FRC, you will have gained knowledge on how to be successful in the Model Region, how you can gain from NSBE, and how NSBE gains from you too.
Throughout the conference our workshops will be centered on topics such as entrepreneurship, networking, furthering your engineering career, leadership development, community impact, and development of identity as a young Black professional. You will be challenged by participating in our exciting competitions like Hackathon, Academic Tech Bowl, NSBE Debaters, and NSBE Elevator Pitch. We also want you to attend the career fair and network with our corporate sponsors to potentially land an internship or co-op. For NSBE Jr. participants, I encourage you to participate in competitions such as Try Math-A-Lon, PCI Talks, and workshops that provide both leadership and academic development. At this year’s conference, we want you to step out of your comfort zone and engage and build relationships with all attendees. We are a stronger Society when we learn from each other.
Region II, let’s remind the entire society why they call us “The Model Region”, just in case they forgot! Are you ready to to represent the D-E-U-C-E at the most HYPE FRC in the entire society?! If you are ready, you should join us and #ExploreEngineerElevate.
With NSBE Love,
Kayla A. Mumford
2018-2019 Region II Fall Regional Conference Chairperson
