Western Region Student Conference

38th Annual NABA Western Region Student Conference


October 12-14, 2017
Houston, TX



On behalf of the Western Region and all those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, we extend our gratitude for your thoughts, prayers, and support to our NABA members and families over the last week and hope they will continue.  Over 500 members, friends and partners of NABA are affiliated with the 15 NABA chapters (professional and student) in Texas and Louisiana coastline and we know the impact is continuing to expand as the storm moves north.
As the Houston region continues to recover from the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey, several inquiries have come to the NABA Western Region leadership regarding the status of the Western Region Student Conference scheduled for October 12 – 14 in Houston.  I tell you with confidence that the conference date and location have not been affected – the conference will proceed as planned. We have been in constant contact with the Westin Houston staff and other officials to monitor the situation and they have given their assurance.
We are excited to see Western Region Student Conference come together, despite this regional crisis, and encourage your participation and support! 
We also encourage you to support the disaster relief and donation efforts.  NABA Inc. has set up the ‘NABA Disaster Relief Fund’ to assist in the relief efforts.  Donations to this fund will be designated and directed to our Chapters in the impact zones for the purposes of community support and disaster relief.  To make a donation, click the donation button...

Together we can make an impact and fulfill the principle of our motto: Lifting As We Climb.

Why Partner with the WRSC?

Simply stated, the NABA Western Region Student Conference (WRSC) 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 a WRSC 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 WRSC helps reduce company costs by limiting travel to various schools and locations in the West and Southwest.
