A Note from the Membership Committee: Why Renew Your SWE Membership?

Here are a few reasons why you should renew your SWE membership prior to September 30, 2012:

1. Maintain Your SWE Benefits Uninterrupted -  Keep receiving SWE Magazine, the SWE All Together newsletter, access to free SWE webinars, and discounted conference rates.

2. Continue Funding Your Local Section or Member at Large - A portion of your membership dues is rebated directly back to your local section or member at large and helps to fund a variety of worthwhile programs!  This may include outreach or professional development events or perhaps a scholarship effort.

3.  Consistent Support of SWE - Show the world that you support SWE in its mission to: Stimulate women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders; Expand the image of the engineering professional as a positive force in improving the quality of life; and Demonstrate the value of diversity.

4.  Strength in Numbers - Help us maintain a visible force in public policy and the general public.

I'm old fashioned, send me a bill and I will pay for it. When I graduated from college, slide rules were coming out. I still like to pay by check.

I'm reading this page and I'm trying to close it gracefully, if I ever find the end. I have been retired since 1991. I try to use the internet as little as possible, but right now I have over 6000 emails. I'm retired, but I don't want to spend all of my time reading emails. Everybody and his brother are sending me information, as if that's all I want to do all day. I'm already behind on my daily newspaper, plus the other newspapers that I get plus the many magazines that I don't have time to read. I miss going to the Engineers Week activities, but no one invites me anymore. I'm involved with the Los Angeles Council of Black Professional Engineers teaching Math and Science on Saturdays, but even that is slowing down. I'm a 14 year breast cancer survivor with a few aches and pains and a 81st birthday coming up.
