Hello! The message below was sent out in a SWE e-blast. If you are interested in becoming more involved with SWE on the national level, then joining a SWE Committee or Task Force would be a great way to start! Also, if you are looking for more leadership experience, I would encourage you to apply for a chair or chair-elect position. These roles are open to ALL SWE members – including collegiates!
