Hot Topic: Back to School, Back to SWE
“In times of stress, the best thing we can do for each other is to listen with our ears and our hearts and to be assured that our questions are just as important as our answers.”
Welcome Back! For many of you, school is in the first few weeks of classes, and I know if you are like me, it’s often the most overwhelming time of year (maybe besides finals/project week). To get started, I want to introduce you to our Region Collegiate Team (RCT). If you want to learn more about our team, check out the Region Collegiate Team page on the right. The RCT consists of:
Region Governor –Jessica Rannow (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Region Lieutenant Governor – Haydee Hetrick
Sarah Watzman: Region G RCR
Jamie Tylicki: Region G RCS
Amanda Thorp: Region G RCCE
Alexandria Carr: Region G SWEFL
Region G FY13 CLCC Team (Collegiate Leadership Coaching Committee):
Team Lead: Alison Moscarillo
Team Member: Tabitha Voytek
Team Member: Samantha Krueger
These wonderful ladies are here to represent and support you! If you have any questions, feel free to contact us. If we can’t help you or answer your question, we will find someone who can!
Also, since the beginning of the year can be overwhelming, be sure to start (and stay!) as organized as possible. Here are some of the dates and forms I wanted to make you aware of, and be sure to SUBSCRIBE to the blog (subscribe on the upper right corner). This way, you will get an email when we do a new post, and you won’t miss any important information or deadlines.
If you have not filled out your annual report or financial report for the previous year, please do so! They are PAST DUE! You can find the proper forms under the Collegiate Resources Tab. Or right here:
Turn them in to HQ@swe.org and let the RCR (Sarah @ email@example.com) know as well.
Also, remember that the first section report is due very soon! Be sure to complete the Report 1 tab, the FY 13 Roster, and update your Goals and Activity Log Tabs. Also, whenever you turn in your section report, please include who your Outreach Chair/Coordinator, etc. is. If you do not have one, please list who is normally considered to be responsible for outreach (eg. President). Please send to Sarah (firstname.lastname@example.org) as well as Amanda (email@example.com).

Be sure to check out Calendar Page periodically to keep up to date with all the upcoming deadlines and opportunities.
Besides the RCT Page, the Calendar Page, and the Collegiate Resources Page, there is a Page about our Region, with Photos, Hot Topics, and a Section Spotlight Page.
If you are interested in adding any pictures to the blog or completing a Section Spotlight, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to hear from you!
Beneath the subscribe page are popular post categories so you can see some of the older archived articles that might interest you. There’s also links to check out all the SWE blogs and see what other SWE members are up to. You can also see some of the Region and Societal Links as well as our general archives. Also, be sure to check us out on Facebook!
That should just about lay the foundation for this year in our Region. Stay tuned for some other useful blog posts and maybe even some fun ones along the way. If you have any questions, please contact any of the members of our RCT, and we will be happy to assist you however we can. I’m looking forward to a SWEet year!
