Hi Region G!
Annual Conference is only a few days away!! Here is some more information along with things to keep in mind while at conference!
Region Meeting, Thursday 2:00-4:00PM: This is required for section presidents and highly recommended for section officers. All collegiates at the conference should attend this Thursday region meeting. There is also a collegiate leaders’ reception on Friday night which you should attend to network and thank the companies sponsoring the FREE housing. Also, let your section treasures know about the Region & Section Treasurer’s Meeting on Thursday after the region meeting.
Collegiate Leaders Meeting, Friday 7:30-9:00AM– Section Presidents are required to attend this meeting! I know it’s early but don’t brave the wee hours of the morning alone–encourage other officers and section leaders to join you as well!! Just an FYI, we will be sharing a room with Region F.
e-Postcard Meeting: In order to help answer e-postcard questions, Wendy and Jessica will be attending the Section Treasurers Meeting on Thursday afternoon (and will be able to stay after to answer questions). Also, they plan to hold a special question and answer session on Friday morning, immediately following the Collegiate Leaders Meeting (so 9:00am). This session is not in the schedule and will just be Wendy and Jessica going over the basic e-postcard process and answering individual questions. I don’t have the room assignment yet, but it will be in the large room that is listed in the conference schedule for the collegiate leaders meeting.
Professionalism: Please remember to act professionally while at conference—you are a leader within SWE! Attire is business casual for the conference, and you’ll want to wear business for the career fair. Celebrate SWE is formal (but business casual can suffice) and you can wear casual attire to the ice cream social 🙂
Please also pass on to your sections that we are in need of a representative on the National Nominating Committee! Members on this committee nominate Region Officers and help build the leadership pipeline. This is a great way to get involved in SWE and learn a lot about the society!
