A Welcome Letter​

Hello NAESC members! 


My name is Lily Coss, and as NAESC Vice President of Conferences, I am happy to invite you to the NAESC Engineering Leadership Summit 2023. This is an incredibly impactful conference as it is the first in-person national conference we have seen since 2019! We want to welcome each of you and invite you to register your council for this amazing experience. We are looking forward to sharing a great conference experience with you! 


The Engineering Leadership Summit hosts NAESC members from our five NAESC regions; Southeast, North Atlantic, Midwest, Central, and West. Each of these regions has a unique identity in NAESC and we are beyond excited for a conference that encapsulates them all!


Southeast Region

North Atlantic Region

Midwest Region

Central Region

West Region

The goal of this conference, and all NAESC conferences, is to bring engineering student council members together in a collaborative setting to network, develop professional skills, and discuss relevant topics such as freshmen involvement, funding, DEI, K-12 outreach, and much more within their council. In addition to networking with peers, NAESC conferences provide an opportunity to connect with professionals through industry events and keynote speakers. There will be a wide variety of activities and events that will add to your professional development and collegiate leadership journey.


Whether this is your first NAESC conference or you have been to several over your collegiate career, we cannot wait to see you at the University of Pittsburgh in March! We hope you have an amazing experience and take home some great ideas to your council.
