Celebrating 30 Years of Regional Leadership Conferences
The Regional Leadership Development Conference was designed to strengthen the student and professional chapters in SHPE’s 7 regions by providing an avenue for learning and engaging future Hispanic leaders. Since 1987, the RLDCs have offered robust interactive programming that focused on developing key strengths and skills to be an effective leader. SHPE Members gain knowledge in areas such as organizational structure, engaging more Hispanics in STEM, cultivating chapter connections to the Hispanic community, personal and professional development, and community service.

Conference Provides Opportunity for Hispanic Engineering Students
BALTIMORE —Area Hispanic engineering students had the opportunity to gain valuable experience at the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers annual conference.
It's impossible to know what these students are making because it's something that has never been created before.
"We are building a marshmallow cannon," engineering student Julian Zuluaga said. It is part of something called the "Extreme Engineering Challenge."
"It's competitive," Zuluaga said. "There are 10 teams. Each team has a company representing them."
