The Heartland Annual Round Table was established to provide region H senators the opportunity to fully discuss the important upcoming SWE legislative and strategic business with their constituents; to provide region council members a chance to network and share best practices with others in the region; and to provide leaders throughout the region with the necessary leadership and operations training to make their SWE organizations run smoothly and effectively support SWE’s mission.
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is the world’s largest advocate and catalyst for change for women in engineering and technology. To ensure SWE members reach their full potential as engineers and leaders, the Society offers unique opportunities to network, provides professional development and shapes public policy. SWE champions the value of diversity. We inspire young girls to become engineers and support them with scholarships in order to expand the engineering profession’s ability to improve the quality of life for billions of people worldwide.

For more information about the Society please visit www.swe.org or call (312) 596-5223.

The organization is divided into regions to assist in communication flow from the Society to its members and vice versa. Region H (the Heartland Region) is the largest region with over 5000 members and it includes Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, North Dakota, and South Dakota. For more information about Region H, visit http://regionh.swe.org/, http://regionh.wordpress.com/, or contact the region governor at governor-h@swe.org.
The FY18 HART summit is the last one to be held, as part of the ongoing Governance changes from SWE include dissolution of the Regions.

The SWE - Central Illinois Section has over 300 active members across Central Illinois region and has been recognized at both Regional and Society level, for hosting successful events, ranging from professional development presentations to outreach activities to networking lunches and social outings to technical tours.
