Esteemed Members of Region II,

Welcome to yet another wonderful year of NSBE! Myself and my fellow board members are eager and ready to serve as your 2016-2017 Region II Executive Board. During this year, we will be leading our Region into theIMG_4215.jpg Year of Breakthrough: Eliminating Barriers to Establish Productivity. Our National and Regional Directives will lead us to Obtain Clarity on where we see ourselves in 2025, Cultivate our members, and Present our Culture of Excellence as the "Model Region." Clarity. Cultivate. Culture.


Imagine a NSBE where there is a complete understanding of where we want to go. A vision of graduating 10,000 Black Engineers by the year 2025. Imagine a NSBE Pipeline with 100% efficiency, with the total utilization of each component. This is the NSBE I want to have within our Society, and especially our Region. As a collective group of Engineers, it's only natural to want to obtain the peak efficiency with the best performance possible. This is why I feel that our directives of Clarity, Cultivate and Culture are that much essential to obtaining this vision.


It is only from the support from our members that we are able to obtain this standard that we know too well. Throughout the year, we urge you to communicate with us...let us know how we can assist you to the best of our ability. I also urge you to step outside of your comfort zone and try something new. Whether it be getting involved in a committee, competing in a competition, or even considering leadership opportunities, I do hope we get your support to help us reach that standard of the Model region.



Keep it II Hype!!
