SWE PNW Behind the Scenes! Ever wonder how our emails come together? It's thanks to drafting by our Secretary, Marina, and the tech support from our Virtual Brand Team! Theresa plays double duty while waiting at the airport to head to #WE18, taking the final draft from Marina, creating the social share card image (PPT to JPEG is our friend!), and sipping her hot coco. Look for the October email to hit your inboxes soon! The behind the scenes support from many different EC members and committee members is critical so we can keep bringing you awesome events and communications! Intertested in helping? Send Elaine an email at email@example.com and let her know where you'd like to help! @marinaaa_d_ @wanderingteekay @elainecharbonneau #swepnwbehindthescenes

Happy SWE New (fiscal) Year! We are happy to welcome Elaine Reeves as our FY19 President! To help kick-off another great year with SWE PNW, Elaine wants to share the following message with you: Welcome to FY19! I am pleased to announce our theme for the year as 'Taking the First Step.'

We have exciting events coming through the pipeline and hope to see many of you this year! #FY19 #swepnw #TakingTheFirstStepFY19
