NSBE Friends and Family,
I am very humbled to continue my service as your 2018-2019 President. Last year, I said it would be our best year ever – and it was! We won the two highest awards given to Professionals chapters on a national level, gave away over $20,000 in scholarships, and secured partnerships with some of the largest corporations in the Houston Area.
We had an amazing year and you can bet this year will be no different!
Again,this year, we have huge financial goals, that we need you to support. My goal is to raise $55,000 in sponsorships and again donate $20,000 in scholarships to local high school and college students.
You can also anticipate a re-branding of our website, hosting the National Professional Development Conference with very own Fresh Start Program, our newly piloted Company Ambassador and Company Ally initiatives, NSBE Hour with HP featuring influential leaders in Houston, more members’ only networking events, our 21st Annual Scholarship Gala, the celebration of our 30th Year Chapter Anniversary and so much more!
Being recognized as the 2017-2018 National Professionals Chapter of the Year and Diamond Chapter of the Year during our National conference was truly an incredible moment for all of us! This was the first time in the 30 year history of the chapter of us being selected for this award so we are very proud!
We definitely plan to continue the legacy to become two times champs – hold me accountable.
Finally, thank you again for entrusting me to lead this amazing chapter and I hope you join us for the ride as my final year as President.
