Committees

Each year, our SWE section relies on a number of committees to help us plan events and meet our SWE goals for the year. Below are a list of committees and their committee chairs.  If you are interested in participating on any of the committees, please contact the SWE President, Nicole Averell (nma14@zips.uakron.edu)!

Fundraising Committee – Co-Chairs Brittany Apone (bra12) and Morgan LaVallee (mhl5)
The purpose of this committee is to plan fundraising events for SWE throughout the semester to raise money for our members to eat at meetings and attend SWE conferences.  In the past, this committee has planned and organized SWE Bake Sales.

Professional Committee
– Co-Chairs Kate Kalnicki (kek34) and Jamie Whyte (jlw143)
The purpose of this committee is to plan professional development activities for members, to be a liaison between the Akron Collegiate SWE Section and the Northeast Ohio Professional SWE Section, and to organize events between both sections.

Outreach Committee – Co-Chairs Melanie Seyman (mks43) and Maggie Calder (mrc53)
The purpose of this committee is to plan outreach events for middle school students, high school students, and girl scouts. In the past, this committee has planned and organized a SWE High School Sleepover for prospective Engineering Students at the University of Akron.

Membership Committee – Co-Chairs Brandi Kiehl (beb25) and Chrissy Copeland (cnc13)
The purpose of this committee is to recruit more members to SWE. To do this, they are in charge of the SWE point system, where members earn points for attending meetings and events.  They are also responsible for educating collegiates on the benefits of SWE membership and types of SWE membership (i.e. Collegiate-to-Career, C2C).

Grad Students Committee – Co-Chairs Ashley Wilkinson (aew18) and Aleesha McCormick (amj51)
The purpose of this committee is to develop programs that are inclusive to the graduate student community and to encourage grad student participation in SWE events.

Publicity Committee – Co-Chairs Lauren Kukwa (lrk15) and Renee Horn (rmh60)
The purpose of this committee is to publicize SWE events around campus and to market SWE as an invaluable student organization within the College of Engineering.

Social Committee – Co-Chairs Lindsey Montanari (lnm22) and Vanessa Zapata (vcz2)
The purpose of this committee is to plan social events for members throughout the semester in order to allow members to network across all of the engineering disciplines and to take a break from studying!

Volunteer Committee – Co-Chairs Nicole Brostowitz (nrb37) and Jessica Miller (jlm211)
The purpose of this committee is to organize service projects and events for SWE members on campus and in the Akron community. One service project that SWE partakes in each year is that we decorate a Christmas tree to be auctioned off. All proceeds from the Christmas tree go to Akron Children’s Hospital.

Website Committee – Co-Chairs Karin Bodnar (keb36) and Lindsay Montanari (lnm22)
The purpose of this committee is to develop an outstanding website for the University of Akron SWE Section. The website should include up-to-date information for events, meetings, and SWE officers, so that it can serve as a communication tool for the Akron SWE section.
