MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Greetings to the NSBE Richmond Professional Chapter!!
I have the honor of serving you as the chapter’s president for the 2019 – 2020 year. I am most grateful to have the opportunity to lead the chapter in fulfilling the NSBE mission of increasing “the number of culturally responsible Black Engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally and positively impact the community.” As a member or supporter of this chapter, your role in fulfilling the mission here in the Greater Richmond area is of utmost importance! You can do this in many ways. You can get involved with our Pre-College Initiative programs to ensure we develop the next generation of Black STEM engineers. You can connect with our collegiate NSBE members at the various area chapters we support, serving as mentors, guides, and confidants. If you have an inkling to help professionals move forward personally and in the careers, become involved with the Professional Development Committee to assist and make an impact. Do you enjoy being social and an extrovert? Help bring members to the organization by planning community social and service events through our Membership Committee and help the chapter grow.
It is my hope that you will learn more about the Richmond NSBE Professionals Chapter and how we can work together to fulfill the NSBE mission. We want you to succeed professionally. We had a strong year last year in programming and participation. We are an Award Winning Chapter - 2018 & 2017 Region II Silver Level Chapter, 2017 Region II Chapter of the Year, 2017 Golden Torch National Professional Chapter of the Year Award!!!
Our goals for the 2019-2020 NSBE year are to provide more professional and technical development seminars and opportunities, broaden awareness of NSBE in the high schools of the greater Richmond region, and strengthen our relationship with VCU, VSU and VUU.
We meet monthly on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm (September-May). Please join us, share and grow your skills and talents in helping us fulfill our NSBE mission.
Richmond Professionals NSBE President
