Ignite. Imagine. Innovate.”

FRC is our Fall Regional Conference, and the biggest stage you’ll see NSBE on besides Annual Convention, which is also in Region II this year! With our theme of “Ignite. Imagine. Innovate.” there are a lot of opportunities this year for professional development, networking, furthering your engineering career, as well as personal development as a young Black professional. Most of all, FRC will be culturally relevant this year. We will be answering the question: How can you use NSBE as both a resource and a student-led movement? FRC is your opportunity to show us exactly where you want NSBE to go next.
