Hello NSBE Leaders!
My name is Avery Layne, and it is a privilege and honor to serve as your 2021
National Leadership Conference (NLC) Chairperson! I'm pleased to announce that
our 2021 NLC will be held virtually on NSBE's campus in VirBELA. This year, our
conference will be guided by the theme "TIME to ENGAGE."
As you should know, NSBE is moving into the first year of implementing its
new Strategic Plan. This first year of the Strategic Plan coincides with a
large-scale return to in-person activities for many members across all
demographics. At this intersection, we as leaders have two crucial tasks ahead
of us. First, we must successfully navigate the return to in-person activities
without forgetting the lessons of virtual engagement learned over the past year.
Second, we must ensure that we fully understand each part we play within the
Strategic Plan and move towards its successful implementation.
At this year's NLC, you will learn how to complete each of these tasks
successfully. As you learn more about principles such as program management and
execution, public relations, and funds solicitation, you'll be successful in
your position to implement the Strategic Plan. As you collaborate and brainstorm
with other leaders from different regions and boards, you can share ideas on
best practices for engagement in both physical and virtual spaces to maximize
engagement for this year. You'll also receiving training in leadership
competencies such as leading others, setting vision, and balancing NSBE and
school/work that will help you excel as a leader in this term and beyond.
Be ready to learn from the National Leaders, Advisors, and World Headquarters
Team as we prepare you all for success

We're looking forward to seeing all of you!
