West Mountain Regional Conference

our conference

“Incredible Minds. Infinite Potential.”

The Society of Scientists and Engineer’s West Mountain Regional Conference brings together collegiate chapters and young professionals within and around Colorado for a day of learning, networking, and growing. This year, we shift our focus to enhancing the skills of the individual: proper networking guidelines, tactful and confident social presentation, and introductory financial literacy, amongst other themes. We hope to provide an intimate setting where attendees are encouraged to “break out” of STEM stereotypes to set themselves on a prosperous path forward.


Founded in November of 2007, the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE) is an Asian-focused—not Asian-exclusive—national non-profit organization aimed to aid its members to succeed both academically and professionally. Based primarily on college campuses across the United States and slowly increasing its network in high schools and companies alike, SASE provides a platform for young adults to develop professionally while also celebrating culturally. CU Boulder SASE has helped its members continue on to careers in companies such as Google, Ball Aerospace, and Lockheed Martin.
