Chapter: University of Maryland Eastern Shore

Greetings Southeast,     

My name is Vernajh Pinder,  and I am a sophomore at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. I am honored to be your 2017-2018 Southeast Regional Chair. I know without a shadow of a doubt that we will have an amazing year working together as our region continues to establish itself as a trailblazer.

My Journey with NSMH begun last year and  after leaving my first regional conference I had this unexplainable yearning to do more in this organization. I came into NSMH as a shy timid college freshman and I have seen myself grow tremendously. That growth would not have been possible without this organization. This organization has become part of me and I hope you'll allow me to share that piece with you. NSMH will ensure your growth and development through its enriching programs and the opportunities it provides.

The Southeast Region will have a joint regional conference with the Southern Region.  The South/Southeast Regional conference will be held near Charlotte, NC at the Great Wolf Lodge.  Join us for an amazing weekend of development, networking with industry professionals, meeting NSMH members from other schools and fun.  Reserve your rooms no later than September 29, 2017 at the discounted rate of $139 per night by calling 866-751-9653 and using the reservation code 1710NSMH.  Register for the NSMH South/Southeast Regional conference via the NSMH portal at for $60 before October 6, 2017.  After October 6 and on-site the price will be $75.

Are you ready to embark on this journey as we take charge of change? Today we are students, tomorrow we can be leaders! I look forward to meeting each of you at our conferences this year. I want this to be a year of personal and professional growth for each of you as we strive for excellence. Don't hesitate to reach out to me for anything that you need. I am confident that this will be a remarkable year!

Best Regards,
