Our names are Annie Kennedy and Christine Pitner, and we’re the 2009-2010 Regional Collegiate Representatives for the Region E. Many, if not all, of you have heard from us already, and let us just say know how lucky we are to work with such intelligent and responsible women! Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you and your SWE section. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re here as your resource, and we hope you leverage us as a resource as much as possible.
Every year is always an exciting year for SWE, but this year is even moreso since we’ll all be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Society of Women Engineers. Region E is actually fortunate enough to have some of the founding SWE sections! To learn more about the fascinating history of SWE, check out the Philiadelphia professional section’s website. They’ve put together an excellent website brimming with history of women in science and engineering. Here is a link to their site: http://www.philaswe.org/history/index.html
We’ll hopefully see many of you at National Conference from October 15-17th in Longbeach, California. We have to say we’re looking forward to putting a face to a name. Get ready for sunny and warm weather! J
