Conferences are a great opportunity for our members to network with SHPE members from different chapters and recruiters from their favorite companies at the career fair. Furthermore, the various workshops run by corporate representatives promote conference attendees' professional development.
SHPE National Conference takes place every fall. This year's conference took place in Seattle, Washington from November 2nd-6th. A group of 34 active members from SHPE-RPI attended! Time to prepare for next year's conference!
Regional Leadership Development Conference (RLDC)
SHPE Regional Leadership Development Conference (RLDC) takes place every Spring. If you are interested in attending the conference, please prepare a letter of intent (LOI, see below for sample LOIs) to Jo-Ann Diaz explaining why going to conference will be a valuable experience. More information on the upcoming 2018 RLDC will be coming soon!
National Institute for Leadership Advancement (NILA)
NILA takes place every summer and is designed to give executive board members the necessary skills to foster leadership and chapter development. At the conference, these members have the opportunity to network with leaders from other chapters and to become certified chapter leaders. In the summer of 2016, SHPE-RPI sent 2016-2017 President James Hanumanumanuman to attend the National Institute for Leadership at Facebook Headquarters.
