Energizing Creativity to Achieve Exponential Growth

Written by Kim Web on 07 February 2009.

Kimberly M. Cross NSBE 2009 National Convention Planning Committee ChairpersonWe have arrived to the Entertainment Capital of the world! I know all of you have been waiting to see the flashing lights of Las Vegas Strip. On behalf of the entire 2009 Convention Planning Committee (CPC), I welcome you to the 35th Annual National Convention of the National Society of Black Engineers, hosted at the Las Vegas Convention Center and Bally’s and The Flamingo Hotels.

The 2009 CPC, also known as the “Vegas Visionaries,” began its journey in late 2007 with a “Making the CPC ‘09” quest. Since that time, our team has been working diligently to ensure that all attendees leave the convention not only entertained, but also educated and enlightened. As promised this year’s convention will provide you with cutting-edge workshops and high profile motivational keynote speakers. History has been made in our nation during the planning process of this convention. The 2009 convention is the first NSBE National convention under the leadership United States of America’s 1st Black President, President Barack Obama.

The 2009 Convention Theme, “Energizing Creativity to Achieve Exponential Growth” challenges NSBE to generate innovative solutions to create impact in our communities. The convention has been planned with this goal in mind and is designed to provide you, the NSBE member, with the tools to solve the many problems facing our society. Despite the current economic crisis in the U.S. and monetary setbacks for our organization, we have persevered in creatively finding resources to provide all attendees with the optimal convention experience.

It is often said that “What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas,” but that is not our view. We want you to leave Las Vegas with new knowledge and skills, a larger professional network and greater excitement for the NSBE mission. Whether you are a pre-college student, an undergraduate student, a graduate student, a technical professional, an International member, a corporate partner or an esteemed guest, there will be something to offer you at this convention.

The 2009 CPC is excited to open the doors and welcome you to (Whose House?) the Mighty S.I.X. House, for a little something that we call the G.C.O.A.T. - “The Greatest Convention of All Time!”

With Six Hugs & NSBE Luv…Viva Las Vegas!
