Volunteer Positions

We need volunteers! Running the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Boston Professional Section is a labor of love (seriously, none of us get paid for this) and SWE Boston is looking for active and engaged volunteers to fill the following positions:

  • Corporate Liaisons for various companies
    • This is primarily a representative position and does not require much of your time. Being there for us is enough. The Corporate Liaison is the main point of contact between SWE Boston and the company you’re affiliated with. Let them know about us. Let us know about them. Our goal is to have a liaison at every corporation with engineers in the Boston area.
  • Awards Coordinator
    • This position applies to awards on behalf of SWE Boston. This volunteer looks out for awards that SWE Boston can win, collects information from the Executive Council, and sends the applications to those awards.
  • Eventbrite Manager
    • Creates and updates our Eventbrite with upcoming events as requested by the Committee Chairs. This is an important role since in-person events are SWE Boston’s main avenue of engagement, despite social media and remote communication technology. This volunteer:
      • Creates, updates, and personalizes each event
      • Responds to emails by attendees and VPs
      • Sends reminders to attendees
      • Manages payment if necessary
      • Monitors the attendee list to deal with discrepancies (low attendance, incorrect categories)
      • Communicates with our VPs, Newsletter Editor, and Website Manager
    • This is a high demand position and will require professional skills such as good communication, reliability, punctuality, being present, basic graphic design, and attention to detail.

Collegiate Liaisons

Every Collegiate Section must have a SWE Counselor. The Counselor acts as a source of information about SWE and its goals, as a liaison between industry and the Student Section, and as a role model and source of moral support. Counselor responsibilities include reviewing the Section’s annual and financial reports, attending Student Section meetings from time to time, and being on call to answer questions as they arise. The time commitment for this job depends on the Student Section, but it is not more than a few hours per month. If you are interested, please send a message to the Collegiate Section Liaison.
