The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Headquarters Office has been moving from manual checks to electronic fund transfers (ACH or direct deposit). This distribution system is more efficient and eliminates delays due to mailings and or lost checks. The check amount is deposited directly into your section’s checking account within a couple of days of an approved check request.
Direct deposit set-up can be done in 5 easy steps:
1. Email Briana.Aviles@swe.org requesting to set up Direct Deposit. SWE-HQ will create an e-mail alias for the section (used in this e-mail to verify with the section treasurer).2. The section treasurer replies to the e-mail indicating the alias is set up properly.3. An invitation to set up the section account on Bill.com is sent to the section treasurer.4. Respond to the invitation with required banking information within 72 hours.a. Open the Bill.com link and register using the SWE alias provided. (Passwords need to be passed on to future treasurers.)b. Enter the Section’s Account Name, Bank Name, Routing Number, and Account Number.5. SWE’s accountants receive notification that you have completed the process. At this point, a debit and credit of less than $1.00 will appear on the section’s bank account to confirm the transaction operates.
