President (Suzanna Stenger):
My time as President of UNT SWE has been phenomenal. I feel honored to have been allowed to serve you all for the past year. As president I was tasked with running general meetings and officer meetings. I ensured that we had hotel rooms and transportation to WE18 and WE Local St. Louis. Another large portion of what I did was delegate tasks. Nothing we did this year would have been possible without all of the other amazing officers. I was truly blessed to have the officer team that we had this year. I originally wanted to be UNT SWE president because I wanted to see SWE excel beyond where it was in past years. I learned a lot in this position. I learned that there is more behind the scenes work to an organization this size than I first thought. I learned that a task that seems complicated can become simple when you work with a team. I’ve loved my time as UNT SWE President and I look forward to seeing where next year takes us.
Vice President (Sadia Saeed):
I am currently the Internal Vice President for UNT SWE, and my duties include setting up speakers for meetings, updating/keeping track of points, and putting together banquet to name a few. I ran for this position after being the webmaster the previous year, because it allowed me to be more involved with SWE, and contribute to its structure. I didn't realize how much work goes into keeping this organization running, and ensuring things are done with the highest quality. I think being in this position has definitely taught me the importance of organization, communication, and making decisions on a whim!
Treasurer (Meagan Bunck):
As Treasurer you are responsible for keeping track of the UNT SWE funds. This includes keeping an expense report showing where and how money is spent. Additionally, the UNT SWE Treasurer organizes fundraising opportunities that allow funda to be brought in. UNT SWEs primary source of funds is the Concession stands we operate at football games. Throughout the year you are responsible for submitting documentation to National SWE for tax purposes as well as a final expense report at the end of the fiscal year. Being treasurer is a big responsibility but it is a very rewarding experience.
Secretary (Jessica Rider):
Being Secretary for UNT SWE means I maintain our section bylaws, keep track of meeting minutes for every officer and general meeting, and write quarterly newsletters showcasing our amazing section and members. I also have the pleasure of greeting our new and returning members at the beginning of each meeting to ensure they are signed in and receive their raffle ticket. Being Secretary, and even an officer in general, has been very rewarding. I ran for an officer position because I wanted to be more involved with SWE, and this past year has certainly surpassed my expectations. I’ve attended a national conference for the first time, had a bigger role in our section, and learned lots of valuable skills in the process. Time management is very important as Secretary because the minutes have to be completed shortly after each meeting. Teamwork is also crucial as you’re a member of an officer team, and writing skills are beneficial to craft quality newsletters. However, interacting with our members is still my favorite part about being a SWE member, and luckily I have had plenty of opportunities to do so as Secretary.
VP of Public Relations (Neha John):
Being the Public Relations officer is a very important position. You are essentially the bridge between potential new members and current members. My duties in this position included: tabling at as many events as possible (summer orientations, transfer orientations, Welcome Back Bash...etc.), and updating the social media platforms and website. I loved this position, because it gave me the opportunity to meet so many new people, and express to them why I think SWE is an organization worth joining.
If you're an outgoing person looking for an officer position that allows you to meet fellow engineers, and want to keep our members updated through our social medias and website, this is the perfect position for you!
VP of Networking (Ha Tran):
The duties of this officer position include: planning social activities, inviting guest speakers, planning and setting up for banquet, updating the resume book, and being involved with SWE general meetings and officer meetings.
VP of Philanthropy (Bria Winn):
This officer position consists of preparing for our Brain STEMs after school program, and recruiting members to come and help. It is a very rewarding position, and if you love interacting and teaching young children, and organizing events, this is one officer position worth considering!
