From the president
posted 2013-06-16 19:15:43Thank you to all who helped plan events this year! We have had a fantastic year with a variety of events. Our annual banquet was a huge success with our own Vicki Johnson delivering an insightful and hilarious speech! We have one more event for this Fiscal Year - our last Professional Development event of FY13 is this coming Wednesday, see more information in this post!
I would like to thank Lili for her ideas and work in getting our Professional Development series started! She has done a fantastic job finding speakers for this year. We are looking for some Professional Development Chairs for next year, please contact email@example.com if you are interested!
I have been writing "Letters from the President" for the last two years. I am happy to hand over the running of this section (and writing of far more creative letters than me!) to Michelle Boehm! Thank you all for your support over the last two years,
FY13 Wichita SWE President
