How Regions work within S.W.E.

The Society of Women Engineers, founded in 1950, has a combined collegiate and professional membership of 19,000 members. In addition to approximately 300 collegiate sections, SWE has about 94 professional sections. Twelve of these professional sections are located within Region H, which includes the states of Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota. When a member joins SWE, they are assigned to a section based on their ZIP code, unless they choose to affiliate with a different section. To know what section you’re in, look at the first three digits of your ZIP code.  If a member is in Region H and does not live in one of these areas, they would be assigned to the MALs (Members At Large). 

What 'Region H' is

Region H is the Heartland Region, which is comprised of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.  It is the largest Region with over 2800 members including professionals and students. There are currently 17 professional sections and 53 collegiate groups (sections.and interest groups).
