Westin Dallas Park Central
Greetings Region V,
My name is Austin Mamou and I am your 2018 Fall Regional Conference Chair. The 2018 Region V Fall Regional Conference will take place October 25th-28th, 2018, at the Westin Dallas Park Central, in Dallas, TX, themed: "Explore. Engineer. Elevate." This year's conference is focused on maximizing the member experience and you learning to live your best life both professionally and academically. The Region has focused to provide programming and events that support and foster discussion and information exchange between collegiate, pre-collegiate, professionals, and corporate representatives at the regional level. We are providing content in Professional Development, Academic Excellence, Cultural/Social Awareness, and Personal Growth. The workshops presented will help you view the mission in ways that connect to you personally and ultimately better equip you to help reach our goal of graduating 10K black engineers annually by 2025.
This year’s conference will also be focused in personifying our Chair’s Regional Directives, Family, Inclusion, Vision, & Excellence (F.I.V.E). We are excited to bring back events such as the Family Reunion, Vanguard Awards, and other social events to encourage networking and socializing amongst the Region. In addition to workshops, the conference will also include corporate hospitality suites, competitions at the collegiate and precollegiate level, and a career fair with a variety of companies from across the country, spanning all engineering disciplines. You will have the opportunity to network with the companies through the career fair and other workshops, as well as the opportunity to participate in on-site interviews for select employers. Our goal is to have each conference attendee leave feeling more equipped to fulfill the NSBE mission statement: “to increase the number of culturally responsible, black engineers who excel
academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.”
More details regarding the conference will be released over the upcoming weeks as more information is confirmed and becomes available; so please be sure you are following us on social media (@r5nsbe) for updates on rates, hotel registration, promotions, etc. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. On behalf of the Region V Executive Board and Conference Planning Committee, we cannot wait to see you in Dallas, TX!
