Bienvenidos, SHPE Familia! It’s my pleasure to address our membership as the newly elected 2015-2106 chapter President. Your SHPE Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and Board of Directors (BOD) has been hard at work setting chapter goals, and planning this year’s activities. Our continued focus this year will be to increase the value of your SHPE membership by providing high quality networking, community outreach, and professional development opportunities.

The four pillars of SHPE are Professional Development, Community Outreach, Chapter Development, and Leadership Development and we plan to capitalize on each one of these focus areas with our planned events. Some of our high-level goals include increasing paid membership to 60 members, increasing our annual student scholarship yield to $6,000, strengthening our SHPE regional college buddy system relationships, continuing strong performance with our three SHPE Jr. programs, improving awareness and external marketing of the chapter, and continuing to grow our two large charity events – the Holiday Banquet and Spring Golf Tournament.

Please continue to support our chapter and help us make this a great year. Our vision of empowering our local Hispanic community to pursue careers in STEM and excel as technical and professional leaders starts with you. Muchas Gracias!

Aaron Prokopchuk
Chapter President
