It is my honor to serve as the 2016 Annual Convention Planning Committee chair for the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE). When I first heard about NSBE, I was excited about the opportunity to join an organization that believed in uplifting African Americans in the fields of STEM. From that first day, I knew I wanted to do anything and everything to help accomplish the mission. I truly believe in “NSBE Luv” and the potential of the organization to influence cultural change within our communities, thus this year’s convention theme: “Engineering a Cultural Change.”
Please join us as we prepare to gather in Boston, Mass., for NSBE’s 42nd Annual Convention, next March 23rd–27th. As members of the National Society of Black Engineers, we pride ourselves on our academic accomplishments and our efforts to increase the number of black engineers. The goal of the Convention Planning Committee this year is to support this vital work by presenting an event that will invigorate your spirits and energize your minds. We want to prepare you to complete your STEM education, make a cultural impact in your communities and gain the knowledge and skills to succeed professionally. This year’s Annual Convention will forever impact the Society as we enter an era of change and growth. I challenge YOU to be a part of this change and spread “NSBE Luv” to your families, friends and communities. It is up to all of us to help NSBE realize the words of its mission statement. Please join us as we ignite Boston and keep the NSBE torch burning, in our schools, in the workplace and in the community.
