Conferences

SHPE National and Regional conferences enable students to connect with recruiters and develop their professional and leadership skills.

 
 

SHPE National Conference

The SHPE National Conference is the largest event of the year in which undergraduate, graduate, professional, and corporate representatives convene to experience workshops, seminars, and a two-day career fair. The SHPE conference is a place full of ideas and opportunities to strengthen members’ leadership, professional, and networking skills.

 

The national conference typically takes place in the fall and lasts 4 days. Registration opens in early July.

Location varies every year on any part of the United States. Lodging is included along with registration if a person chooses to.

Transportation is left up to the students but as a chapter, SHPE at UCI arranges travel groups so that members do not travel alone.

 

Each year SHPE at UCI is able to send members with the help of our current sponsors. Many of the SHPE national conference member attendees return with scholarships, internships, or full-time job offers.

 

 

SHPE RLDC

SHPE Regional Leadership Development Conference (RLDC) is region’s 2 largest event of the year where SHPE chapters in Region 2 along with corporate representatives gather to experience workshops, seminars, a one-day Career Fair, and research symposium.

 

The regional conference takes place in the spring and lasts 3 days. Registration opens in January.

Location varies every year within Southern California and Arizona. Lodging is also included with registration if a person chooses to.

Since the regional conference is closer to UC Irvine, SHPE at UCI arranges travel groups in cars/vans so that members do not travel alone.
