2017 Region Conferences

For SWE members, ongoing interaction with all that SWE offers happens at the Region and Section levels. Region conferences offer a smaller, local version of the annual conference for professional and collegiate members. In order to meet the demand of Region conferences and to centralize the SWE experience, SWE headquarters launched WE Local.

WE Local official conferences will launch in 2017 with two locations: San Jose, CA (Region A and J) and Pittsburg, PA (Region G). The remaining region conferences (B, C, D, E, F, H, and I) will still be held in 2017. However in 2018, WE Local conferences will be held in lieu of region conferences and expand to five local cities throughout the country with locations changing every year.
