Region V Chair Welcome

Monica Monconduit

Welcome to the Vanguard Region. The region where we have a history of leading the organization in change and advancement. We are Region V, "the GIFT that keeps on giving." This year I have a vision that focuses on Growth, Inclusion, Family, and Transparency.
  • We are home to many amazing chapters and some chapters just getting their start. I want to challenge chapters at all levels to go grow and further increase their impact. There are strong leaders throughout our region at the chapter level, but at the regional level there is still room to improve.
  • Region V is more than just our collegiate membership, NSBE Jr., International, and Professionals feel they have a place at every conference and conventions. My favorite thing about our region is the family atmosphere. From when I started as a chapter member to Chairperson, I have enjoyed conversations and support from members all over our region. That is something I want to continue and for all members to feel from each REB member.
  • Everything we do, the membership has a right to. Our resources, meetings and access to all business conducted. I want to be more transparent with the way we operate and conduct business.

With any concerns, comments, or suggestions. Please feel free to reach out without any hesitation.
