SWE ECI’s FY13 started in July with new leaders and a renewed vision. In an effort to understand the needs of our members, SWE-ECI held multiple strategic planning sessions that were open to all. The outcomes were a new vision, mission, and goals for the year. From these goals, the leadership team created an ambitious calendar, with a mix of social, professional, outreach, and educational events, everyone will find something to enjoy. The highlights of the year’s events are outlined below. Reminders and details of each of these events will be communicated via the monthly newsletters and event invites.
