From The Chair


Welcome to the new Region I Year 2017-18,

I am Kwame Hilson Baptiste, your Region I Professionals Chairperson for 2017-18 and am very excited to serve our community. We are particularly positioned in NSBE to truly impact all three demographics of NSBE membership. In addition, through a large membership, we can truly impact our community.

First, I want to work with chapters to help with recruiting new members of the society and ensuring members know what membership provides. Also, I would like to launch all regional programs as a Region so we can share with members all what NSBE has to offer.

As Region I, we can both impact our professional members and motivate college students and Pre-collegiate students to aspire to be one of us, a successful NSBE Professional member. With membership comes a certain expectation to live the mission for ourselves and for others. So motivate others to live the mission and not just take from it. 

Come be a part of the growth and development of the National Society of Black Engineers and help us get to 10K+ by 2025.



Respectfully with Fiyah,
Kwame Hilson Baptiste
