Upcoming SWE CRS Programs
Join SWE-CRS for a book discussion:
Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg has stirred up quite the buzz. This book outlines a number of
issues that professional women deal with, both on a day-to-day basis and at major
milestones in life. It encourages women not to back away from our careers, but to lean in
and, ultimately, achieve what we want out of life. It also provides insight as to how to
take steps towards those goals and how to build a support network to contribute towards finding the leader in all of us.
Read Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and join your SWE-CRS members in a discussion!
2013 SWE-CRS Annual Banquet
The Annual Banquet is a great time for SWE members to network, enjoy a meal with their
peers, and celebrate a successful year. We will congratulate our scholarship recipients
and thank our corporate sponsors. We will also recognize the Chicago Regional Section
member award winners. The Annual Banquet is also where we award the Golden Family and
Collegiate Sections awards.
The banquet committee is looking for volunteers to help with the event. To volunteer as a
photographer, assistant planner, greeter, or general assistance, please contact Jennifer
Sciullo at email@example.com. Volunteers
will receive a ticket at a discounted price.
Coaches wanted for the Collegiate Leadership Coaching Committee (CLCC):
The CLCC is looking to recruit new coaches for FY14! The CLCC helps to promote section
vitality by sending coaches to collegiate sections to present SWE related, professional
development modules during a coaching session.
If you are interested in applying for a coaching position or would like more information
about the CLCC, please contact Heather Wiest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call out to all SWE members to become FIRST Robotics Team mentors!
Be a FIRST Robotics team mentor. There are many in the city of Chicago and surrounding suburbs.
The teams are made up of high school youth (freshman through seniors), all potential
future engineers.... Under the right mentorship!!!
Consider this an opportunity to pay it forward in your community while doing something fun
and technically challenging (building a robot from scratch in 6 weeks is a a lot of fun and
technically challenging) and learning new ways of thinking (the minds of youth are not as
restricted as ours and we can learn a lot from their creativity)!
Also, remember what the statistics show, youth don't tend to look at career paths that
don't have adults that look like them. SO, if we are in there, helping out with these
different teams, we are showing we are out here as engineers. They can see who they can
become and not let anyone or any subject stop them from achieving their dreams!
Please contact: Dan Green at email@example.com to get involved!
