Greetings to each one of you, and welcome, student members, to a new academic year!
When I ran for the position of National Chairperson of the National Society of Black Engineers, I promised to build on the good work our organization had done in past years and to continue our efforts “to increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.”
Of all that NSBE does, the most important, I believe, is to establish standards of academic and professional excellence within ourselves, other members and our chapters.
Maintaining and raising these high expectations are my main goals as National Chair. That’s why I am pleased to announce that NSBE is offering FREE registration to all collegiate Academic Pyramid of Excellence (APEx) members for all Fall Regional Conferences this year!
NSBE rewards academic success, and if you are among those still striving to become an APEx member, I encourage you to keep pushing!
To become an APEx member, you must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 and have submitted an official transcript to NSBE World Headquarters. Take the first step to becoming an APEx member by clicking this link, http://www.nsbe.org/Programs/NSBE-Programs/APEx.aspx, and following the simple steps. Only transcripts submitted by October 3, 2012 will guarantee that you will be able to take advantage of this great opportunity. On-site registration is NOT included in this offer. Please refer all registration questions to your respective regional representative.
Your success benefits not only you but NSBE, the NSBE brand and NSBE’s mission. By pursuing and promoting individual excellence, we create opportunities for our entire community.
With NSBE Luv,
Calvin Allen Young III
National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE)
