Eastern Region Student Conference

42nd Annual NABA Eastern Region Student Conference


October 5 - 7, 2017
Norfolk, VA
Hilton Norfolk - The Main

The 2017 NABA Eastern Region Student Conference (ERSC) will be held in Norfolk, VA, October 5-7, 2017!  
NABA's Regional Student Conferences are one of our largest and most diverse annual student programs.  The ERSC hosts tailored workshops, seminars, and interview sessions designed to better prepare minority students for careers in accounting, financial management, and other business-related disciplines.  At the 2016 ERSC, over the course of the weekend, we were fortunate to have the participation of 622 students and 271 professionals.  With the help of our Corporate Partners, we awarded 32 outstanding students with a total of $37,994 in scholarships and 429 interviews were conducted by our Corporate Partners.  I think we can say that the ERSC was a HUGE SUCCESS!

We encourage your to join us for the 2017 NABA ERSC.  In an effort to continue developing our outstanding students and encourage them to be greater than the status quo, our theme for the upcoming ERSC is "DARE to Lead." We are in the midst of planning a thorough schedule that will assist participants in refining and enhancing their technical and professional skills.

On behalf of the NABA Eastern Region Leadership, we would like to thank everyone that participated in the 2016 NABA Eastern Region Student Conference in Pittsburgh.  The NABA members that volunteered for the Eastern Region Student Conference in 2016 did an outstanding job going above and beyond to produce another successful conference that highlighted an incredible talent pool of students and industry leading corporate sponsors!

Why Partner with the ERSC?

Simply stated, the NABA Eastern Region Student Conference (ERSC) creates a platform for building brand awareness and professional development of college students. The conference provides a forum to promote your company’s brand and opportunities to underwrite events and conference items such as the opening session, career fair expo, scholarships, technical sessions, lanyards & badges and conference bags. As an ERSC partner, you have the opportunity to address your firm’s strategic staffing needs, developing future talent and recruiting top performing students for employment and internships. Additionally, the ERSC helps reduce company costs by limiting travel to various schools and locations in the Northeast Region.
