SWE GSL Annual Planning Retreat

The GSL SWE annual planning retreat is coming up fast on June 7th-9th in Eden, UT. This is a great opportunity to come meet other members of the section and learn more about SWE and your opportunities for getting involved.

The retreat will establish the focus of our events and activities for the upcoming year. If you’d like a say in next year’s SWE initiatives or just want to get to know the section a little better, plan on attending the retreat! We welcome anyone interested in attending, whether you’ve been an active part of the section for years or are totally new and have never attended an event before.

We will start the retreat Friday evening and wrap up Sunday early in the afternoon. Don’t worry if you can’t attend the whole thing, just let us know in your RSVP which days/times you’ll be able to be there.

Feel free to email sweutah@gmail.com with any questions. There are several beds available in the house, but just in case bring a sleeping bag as well as toiletries, extra clothes, and a swimsuit if you’d like to go in the hot tub.

WE Local – Denver

Hello SWE-sters!

My name is Heather Munoz and I am part of the SWE Rocky Mountain Section located within Colorado. I wanted to personally invite you to join us at WE Local Denver March 15-16! If you haven’t heard of WE Local, it is a SWE conference based in different host cities across the county with approximately 500 participants allowing you to Meet Locally and Connect Socially – think SWE national conference but on a smaller scale with more local flair! Would you please share the attached with your section to encourage them to join us at WE Local Denver? Early bird registration deadline is coming up; plus if you sign up to volunteer you can receive a registration discount. 

I hope to see you in Denver for WE Local! Please feel free to reach out with any questions. 

Heather Munoz

Meet Locally, Learn Socially at WE Local Denver!

Registration is open for the 2019 WE Local Denver (March 15-16, 2019) and the conference agenda is LIVE! Take advantage of this local opportunity to network with other women in STEM, focus on your own professional development, and simply have fun! WE Local brings together participants in all stages of their collegiate and professional journey to learn, energize/ re-energize, and connect through high-quality professional development workshops, networking opportunities, inspirational presentations, and outreach activities.

Register at https://welocal.swe.org/denver/register/, or browse the conference schedule and sessions available at https://welocal.swe.org/denver/schedule/agenda/.

WE Local needs volunteers!

With the early registration deadline fast approaching on February 15, consider registering to help volunteer at the event; a few hours of volunteering gets you registration discounts to this local conference and career fair. There are volunteer positions available that support all areas of the conference, from more behind the scenes positions such as set-up and tear down, to hands on positions such as speed networking at the SWENext DesignLab! If you don’t want to miss out on conference content, volunteer as a Local Connector to be assigned to facilitate a session. 

Additional information on general conference volunteering can be found at https://welocal.swe.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/2019-WE-Local-Volunteer-Schedule.pdf.

See the WE Local Denver Volunteer page for registration links: https://welocal.swe.org/denver/schedule/volunteer-at-we-local/.

Hope to see you there!
