As in any organization, funds are a necessity for success. The Finance Zone fulfills such duties associated with the funds of NSBE Gator Chapter. The Finance Zone ensures the availability of needed funds for most events of NSBE Gator Chapter. Finance thus plays a major role in our society.
Equipped with the Treasurer, Finance Chair and the Conference Planning Chair, the Finance Zone plans fundraisers, prepares the chapter for conferences, the national convention, and allocates funds for different activities to ensure appropriate money management. The Finance Zone members serve as the accountants of NSBE Gator Chapter.
The Finance Zone is constantly brainstorming innovative ways of bringing funds into the organization. Their work influences the other zones’ flexibility and ability to plan various programs and events. Subsequently, every zone depends on the Finance Zone to be effective. If the Finance Zone fails, it has a greater impact on the chapter because the scope of the events would be seriously diminished. The Finance Zone fuels NSBE Gator Chapter and is at the fore of its successes.
A Message from Nielsen
Nielsen and University of Florida’s National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) have formed an exciting new collaboration that began with a visit to the Gainesville campus last semester. UF NSBE was honored to have Nielsen host its November 13 meeting at the Florida Museum of Natural History. The event was an exclusive opportunity for student engineers to network with Nielsen employees and executives while enjoying a delicious dinner among the museum’s artifacts. Mitchell Habib, Nielsen’s Chief Operating Officer, presented about Nielsen’s products and services and led a discussion on topics relevant to university students. Habib placed a heavy emphasis on the importance of financial management skills to building a successful career in any discipline. As a passionate supporter of developing young leaders, he is a regular speaker at UF and other colleges across the country. UF NSBE looks forward to many opportunities for future collaboration with Nielsen.
