Region H Conference 2017 had a mixture of professional/collegiate development sessions, networking opportunities, and a career fair with employers from around the region. A group of our very own SWE-ECI Core Board members formed a panel to answer questions on what the day to day working life of an engineer is like, dos and don'ts in the workplace, how to maintain work/life balance, setting career goals, and any other questions the attendees had for one of the sessions. It was well attended, and the panel helped guide the future of the engineering workforce.
SWE-ECI was also awarded the following three awards and we are extremely proud of the accomplishments:
- Continuous Improvement Award (added a new position, Special Event Coordinator, to attract those individuals who'd still like to be involved but do not have the bandwidth to commit as a core-board member)
- Large Section Membership Retention Award
- Large Section Membership Growth Award
Going forward, WELocal is going to replace the region conferences and we welcome you to join SWE at any of the future WELocals. Click here for more information.
