The Minnesota Section's Cathy Krier will be the Region H Treasurer for FY2013. She joins a Region leadership team that includes Governor Jenny Morikawa, Lt. Governor Dayna Johnson, Secretary Katie Amelio, and Senators Diane LaFortune and Julia Spankowski. Congratulations, Cathy!

The Society's Annual Conference, WE12, will be held 8-10 November in Houston, Texas.
Registration is now open for the Conference. Please go to to register and line up housing during the conference. WE12 is a great gathering from across the Society, that includes professional development, awards and recognition, a great career fair, and even some opportunities for outreach. Plus, it's a great networking event where you can meet up with old friends and new!

Lastly, a quick reminder on membership: If you renew your membership before June 30th, which is the end of our fiscal year, you'll save $5 on the regular price. If you are currently unemployed, the Society offers half-price dues, with no hassles. And you can ask me how you can stay engaged with SWE over the long term and never have to worry about renewing again. Email me at for details on Life Membership
