Fall Regional Conference



Greetings Region II Family!


On behalf of the Region II Fall Regional Conference (FRC) Planning Committee I, Jordan Maness your Fall Regional Conference Chairperson, would like to extend a warm invitation for you to join us for this year’s FRC.  The Blake Hotel will be the host site for this year’s conference the weekend of November 8th - 10th, 2013 in Charlotte, North Carolina where the theme is “#NSBE 40: Engineering and Leadership in Harmony,” in honor of our 40th Annual Convention.


The focus for this conference will revolve around GROWTH. On your journey to success you will experience set-backs, obstacles and plenty of sleepless nights. What is important is not that you conquer every single one of these challenges, but it is essential that you remain in constant progression or growth. At this year’s FRC the Region II REB has planned to prepare you for continual growth that will lead to your success as a leader. Our vision is to produce an interactive conference that will maximize networking opportunities and stimulate the growth of all attendees.


We will challenge your intellect with workshops involving the entrepreneurial business and the patenting process. Your creativity will be tested in our innovative competitions and workshops. You will have the opportunity to take charge and develop the right habits through our leadership development workshops. You will be encouraged to step outside comfort zones and build mentorships with entrepreneurs, NSBE Professionals and even your peers. You will also be challenged to serve others through a community service opportunity. The idea is for you to create the right habits and gain the resources needed for you to grow into an engineer who will “excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.”


So join the Region II family in not attending just another conference, but an experience. The Region II REB and I are determined to change your lives forever.  Accept the challenge and continue your growth at the 2013 Region II Fall Regional Conference.

 

Sincerely,

Jordan Maness

2013-2014 Fall Regional Conference Chairperson
