YAXS: XOOPS powers the Website of 2010 SHPE National ConferencePosted by: Mambaon 2010/7/2 13:30:00 6395 reads The Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) is the Source for Quality Hispanic Engineers and Technical Talent.
It was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1974 by a group of engineers employed by the city of Los Angeles. Their objective was to form a national organization of professional engineers to serve as role models in the Hispanic community.
Each year the organization hosts a "National Conference", its major event and the largest technical and career conference for Hispanics in the country, which attracts over 5,000 engineering professionals, students and corporate representatives. The conference is an opportunity for engineering companies and corporations to recruit top talent from SHPE membership. It also provides educational, technical and career opportunities for professional and student engineers.
This year, the 2010 SHPE Conference will take place in Cincinnati, OH October 27 to October 31, 2010.
And for the first time, their conference Website (http://conference.shpe.org/) will be powered by XOOPS.
This is an important win for XOOPS, as this Website will be visited by thousands of professionals from major corporations and universities, who could become XOOPS users and developers.
It is also a sign of confidence in XOOPS by one of the top organizations for professional engineers in the USA.
Hopefully, there will be more and more high visibility Websites that are "powered by XOOPS" !
