On behalf of the Region III Executive Board, it is with great honor that I welcome you to Region III of the National Society of Black Engineers. I am Shabir A. K. Bhegani, and I am serving as your 2017-2018 Region III Chairperson.
I am delighted to have you all here with us on our journey to Bring POWER Back to the Powerhouse! Region III serves the areas of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, the Caribbean, and South America. We have been affectionately called the “Powerhouse” due to our years of being the largest region, and our historic leadership depth that has and continues to shape the society. Here we challenge our members to stand more than ready to lead and make a striking impact in our communities by staying THREE Ready.
Region III has set new directives for this year that are sure to leave a legacy as we push to achieve the strategic goal of graduating 10,000 black undergraduate engineers annually by 2025. The directives are simple and I hope to see you take part in them!
I look forward to meeting and interacting with you all. I am optimistic that this year will be one that is remembered for its lightning impact that fuels your NSBE fire to fulfill the mission!
One Region – inspire cross-demographic collaboration
Strengthening our Leadership Pipeline – improve leadership training programs
Cultivating the THREE Ready Member – develop members who understand and model the NSBE legacy
Always THREE Ready,
Shabir A.K. Bhegani
