Call for Applicants!
Are you interested in taking your SWE leadership to the next level?  Do you want to make a difference in programs for collegiate members or assist in developing the strategic direction of SWE in the Senate; this is your opportunity to apply! You could be your region’s next Region Collegiate Representative (RCR), Region Collegiate Communication Editor (RCCE), or Region Collegiate Senator (RCS).

The RCR is responsible for representing collegiate members’ interests among regional leaders.  The RCCE is responsible for communicating important SWE events and best practices through the region’s blog.  Plus, the RCR(s) and RCCE from each region will have the opportunity to attend next summer’s Collegiate Leadership Forum in San Francisco, CA!

The RCS is responsible for chartering strategic direction and adopting long-range goals for the Society.  The alternate RCS is responsible fulfilling their Senator’s duties if the Senator is unable to perform their tasks.  The RCS from each region may also have the opportunity to attend next summer’s Collegiate Leadership Forum in San Francisco, CA!

The RCE, RCCE, and RCS positions provide invaluable interaction and coaching from SWE leaders.  These leadership opportunities sharpen your career skill-set in the areas of leading and facilitation, group dynamics and communication, and project leadership.
