    The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) was founded

  • 1980

    NSBE national officers presented a proposal to include an alumni sector in the organization. Although the Alumni Extension (AE) was not accepted at the time, the effort initiated a multi-year provess to create NSBE AE.

  • 1984

    A revised proposal reflecting the origins of the current alumni infrastructure was developed.

  • 1985

    At the 1985 NSBE national conference, the NSBE membership approved the formation of an Alumni Task Force. Over the next 3 years, the views of NSBE students and alumni across the nation were articulated leading to the NSBE AE Operating Guidelines.

  • 1988

    At NSBE's 14th Annual Convention, the NSBE membership approved the proposal to include the Alumni Extension as an operating entity of the National Society of Black Engineers. During the next year, NSBE AE focused on redefininf their Operating Guidelines and developing regional infrastructure. This addition of NSBE AE not only promotes participation and input from the professional engineering community, but also provides a mechanism for NSBE graduating seniors to continue their involvement with the organization.

  • 2013

    In April 2013 the NSBE Alumni Extension name was changed to NSBE Professionals. NSBE Professionals has grown to over 5,000 national and international members with over 50 local chapters across the world.
