Fall Regional Conference
Hello Region II Family!
My name is Marcus Jordan and, as the Fall Regional Conference Planning Chairperson
, it is my honor to cordially invite you to this year’s Fall Regional Conference (FRC). This year’s conference, themed Innovation & Excellence: Reimagining Your Future, will be in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, November 14th to 16th at the DoubleTree by Hilton – Green Tree.
The focus of this conference is #IAMTHEMISSION. We belong to a Society that is founded upon the tenants of excelling academically, succeeding professionally, and positively impacting the community. However, sometimes we fail to realize how the mission applies directly to us and the pivotal role we play in achieving that mission. That is why this year your Region II Executive Board is planning to help every attendee recognize their role in fulfilling the mission, and understand how to live the mission every day, so that they can truly exceed their own expectations and cultivate change in the world.
During FRC, we hope you will attend our specially designed interactive workshops, such as our TED talk inspired workshop on innovative technology, in order to broaden your knowledge of unique career paths. We want you to be able to further your personal leadership skills and ultimately challenge yourself to become a better leader. Also, we want you to participate in our regional competitions, such as the Hackathon 2.0, where you will be able to step outside of your comfort zone in order to network, explore, and grow your personal brand. Throughout FRC we urge you to envision your future and how our mission can help you succeed. We challenge you to BECOME THE MISSION.
Region II family I challenge you to show the world just how powerful you can be by living the mission. I hope you accept this challenge eagerly as you prepare for a great weekend in the wonderful city of Pittsburgh! From NSBE Jr. to Professionals, this weekend will truly reignite your NSBE love and add to the passion that you have for our illustrious organization. Together we can make this a Fall Regional Conference that Region II never forgets.
With NSBE Love,
2014-2015 Region II Fall Regional Conference Planning Chairperson
