I welcome you to the FY15 Region A blog! As you may already know, our region is comprised of SWE sections from Northern California, Hawaii, and Nevada. My name is Maribel Locsin and I am your Region A Collegiate Communications Editor (RCCE) for fiscal year 2015. Just a brief background about myself, I am pursuing a BS in Chemical Engineering at San Jose State University graduating in December 2014 and I currently work at Genentech as a Co-Op. I was previously the FY14 Region A Collegiate Senator (RCS) and I am also an active member of AIChE and ASCE. If you have any questions or would like to join my network, you are welcome to check out my LinkedIn profile and connect with me.
My role is to inform the region and all its subscribers about any news or upcoming events that arise throughout the year as well as share best practices and maintain connections between the collegiate and professional sections. I am open to requests for articles such as coverage of significant events, resume blasts, networking tips, etc. so please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also a Region A Facebook group to connect with other SWE collegiate and professional members and keep in tune with what is happening on the region level.
Please subscribe and hope you enjoy reading about the great happenings of Region A!
