In light of the new governance structure and the strategic plan designed to make the Society of Women Engineers more inclusive and globally focused, the Region-based section numbering system will be eliminated starting in FY19. Going forward, all reporting will use the Sections’ official name alone as listed in the SWE Association Management System.
SWE HQ has also researched Sections that use the Region/Section number in their tax filings and has reached out to them individually, through the Finance Chair, to make the necessary adjustments. The numbering change will not impact rebate calculation or critical section functionality, it is simply a cosmetic change to insure the uniformity and unity of the Society.
If you have any questions regarding the Section Numbering Elimination, please contact Trish Kolar at your convenience.
