+ Regional Committee Member – Region G has plenty of Commitees that collegiates are able to serve on as members or chairs.  Currently, Region G is looking for committee members to start a region awards judging committee.  We also are looking for members to be on the region nominating committee to create a slate for spring elections and to identify members to be part of the SWE leadership pipeline project!  If you are interested in either of these committees, please email governor-g@swe.org!

+ SWE Future Leaders (“SWE-fuls”) – This opportunity is for freshmen & sophomores in SWE to learn more about the national organization, to develop their leadership potential, and to meet other future leaders from across the country!  More details will be available on applying for these positions in the spring!
