What is NLC?

The National Leadership Conference (NLC) is a time that brings both national and regional leaders to further their professional development and share innovative ideas. During this conference, leaders will discuss their plans for their time in the office. These meetings will cover tactics on how to effectively communicate and various leadership patterns. At the end of NLC, regional leaders will be prepared to train their chapter leaders at the Regional Leadership Conference (RLC)

Why is it important for ME?

NLC allows attendees to gain and hone their skills as leaders, both as a NSBE member and in general. This will help you be more successful in your leadership terms, courses, and ultimately your career.

Why is it important for NSBE LEADERSHIP?

NSBE’s National Leadership Conference provides training for leaders, preparing them for their terms and how best to give members a quality and beneficial experience.

Why is it important for NSBE as a SOCIETY?
