Hi SWE Members!
Need funding for all of the great events your section hosts? Apply for PDG grants through SWE! Use the short form to apply for Outreach events or the long form to apply for professional development events. More information can be found under My SWE Communities, PDG Grants. Questions on how to find it? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can walk you through it.
Does your section have a great event? Start thinking now about awards you can apply for this year! A completed list of awards can be found at http://societyofwomenengineers.swe.org/index.php/awards. You can also tell other leaders in Region H about your successful event during the section president’s conference call that place monthly. Each month we feature different sections with their best practices or lessons learned. Contact us with any questions!
Make sure you are using SWEeter Futures to advertise your section’s outreach events and find out what other events are in your area!
If your section is not covered by your University for tax purposes, please remember that you need to apply for an EIN if you have not already. After you have an EIN, you must file an e-Postcard each year. The deadline for the e-Postcard filing is November 15th! If you have not filed your e-Postcard yet this year, please be sure to do so before conference! As always if you have further questions about the process, send us an email or give either of us a call.
We would also like to remind everyone that the application process for the next Region Collegiate Team is coming up. If you are interested in becoming an RCR, RCCE, or RCS, please mark the following deadlines on your calender:
Call for Applicants: December 17
Applications Due: February 3
Candidates Presented: March 3
Voting Begins: March 4
Voting Ends: March 28

Safe and happy travels to all that are attending. Prior to departing, if this is your first societal conference, you may want to check out the WE12 Collegiate Orientation Webinar. The webinar offers tips and guidance to get the most out of your time at the conference. Can’t wait to see everyone at WE12!
