Don’t forget to officially become a SWE member or renew your membership! If you have the C2C membership, it’s important that you remember to renew your membership by September 30, 2013 or you will have to pay again. If you are not already a member, become one! Here are the types & benefits of memberships:

Collegiate to Career (C2C) 
For a one-time $50 payment, collegiate members can secure a SWE membership for their collegiate years through the first year they qualify for professional grade membership. C2C is beneficial to students with two or more years of schooling left or those pursuing an advanced degree.  Renewal is required each year, at no charge, to confirm continued SWE Membership.  Take advantage of this program to maximize your savings on membership dues.  

Collegiate
SWE Membership is available for $20 to college students majoring in engineering and must be renewed annually to obtain membership benefits.

Joint
Take advantage of a reduced joint membership rate when you join both SWE and one of these three professional organizations: The American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE).
