Similar to past years, in FY12 there will be one to two RCRs for every 1,000 collegiate members in each region. If collegiate membership reaches 1,000 members by January 31, 2010, a region will add or maintain a second RCR. There will be one RCCE and one RCS elected per region. Alternate RCSs are optional, and the position will go to the RCS candidate with the second highest number of votes.
Disclaimer: Next year, free housing at the Annual Conference will no longer be provided to those holding elected positions. Be aware that if elected, you will need to secure your own housing accommodations for the WE11 Conference in Chicago. There are resources available through your Region Governor.
If you have any questions regarding the positions or the election process, please contact your RCR(s) at rcr-X@swe.org, where X is replaced by the letter of your region, RCCE at rcce-X@swe.org, Wendy Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jessica Kiefer email@example.com.
