On behalf of the NSBE Canada Team, I invite you to the 2010 NSBE Canada Fall Conference to be held at Ryerson University (George Vari Building) in Toronto, Ontario on Saturday October 16, 2010. It is with great honour and excitement that I inform you that our organization was established as a non-profit organization here in Canada as a means to extend the impact made by our mother organization, NSBE, to the African-Canadian demographic. This upcoming year will be especially exciting for us, as we intend to take our mission to the next level.
The conference theme, “The Power of Leadership, Ingenuity and Innovation” is a signature to our commitment to inspire the African Canadian demographic towards success in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics fields. The conference aims to instill the idea of developing a professional network amongst its attendees and also serves as a means of exposing facets of individuals to fellow engineering colleagues in Canada.
On October 16, 2010, the NSBE Canada Team looks forward to hosting you – undergraduates, graduates, technical professionals, the Canadian youth demographic and anyone with the mindset and thought process to always make a progressive future in Toronto, a city that shows strength in its diversity.
