You’ve probably noticed a few changes happening in the past few weeks. Well, as of July 1st, SWE has a brand new look! This has been several years in the making and the result of a lot of hard work at the Society level. The original SWE logo was adopted back in 1960 by then Society President Beatrice Hicks with the help of the Emblem Committee Chair Jeanne Young.
Few changes have been made since then until 2000 when we added the words “Society of Women Engineers” to the gear and adopted the tag line Aspire Advance Achieve.
Now in 2015, 65 years after SWE began, we’ve adopted a new logo to reflect the modern, progressive, and global organization we’ve become.
I hope you will join the Chicago Regional Section this year at any of our wonderful events. From Professional Development to Outreach to Technical Tours. This year promises to be a good one! The Executive Council and Committee Chairs are busy planning workshops and opportunities we hope you’ll find worthwhile. Check out our calendar for more details. If you haven’t been active in a while there’s no time like the present to come back.
Don’t forget to take a look through our website at the committee descriptions. We are still looking for interested members to head up a few of our committees.
I can’t wait to see you at our next event!
FY16 SWE-CRS President
