Let’s get this party started in the Trentino room!

On September 21, 2013, SWE Region E’s top leaders converged in the Washington D.C. area for the Region E Leadership Summit. The annual event, usually held in August or September, is an opportunity to discuss goals and expectations as sections and as a region for the year. In addition, attendees share best practices, questions, and feedback on section and region activities. The summit was a great chance to network and meet other SWE leaders from around the Mid-Atlantic area.

…but also supplied the meeting space necessary to make the summit a smashing success.

Guests in attendance spanned all areas of Region E leadership, including region officers, professional and collegiate section presidents, Member-At-Large (MAL) representatives, and the Region Collegiate Team (RCT).

Brainstorming in action!

The best activities during the summit were the ones that were the most interactive: open-forum discussions sparked exchange of ideas ranging from managing underperforming leaders to obtaining and keeping sponsors, and speed mentoring allowed younger and more experienced SWE members to interact, bond, and learn from each other.
