Frequently Asked Questions
|Q: I submitted a request for a file of DRIE-SWO member contact information: how’s that coming along?||A: Your DRIE-SWO Executive takes member feedback/requests seriously but Privacy Act restrictions prohibit us from distributing member contact information.|
Other DRIE chapters do not provide member contact information either.
At each table at our symposia though, DRIE-SWO will continue to provide a list of attending members for those who agreed to have their information shared, We encourage members to use our symposia for one-to-one networking opportunities.
Q: I have not been receiving notifications of upcoming symposia from you: I only heard about them through word of mouth. Can you fix this for me?
|A: We will put notifications of upcoming symposia in issues of the bimonthly Member Update a few months before each event, in the biannual newsletter (spring and fall) and on our website in the "Events, News and Updates" gadget on the right side of all pages.|
In addition, the DRIE-SWO President is now forwarding details on our upcoming symposia to other DRIE Chapter Presidents for distribution to their members.
Still not receiving our bi-weekly updates? Then please sign in and use the website MMS functionality make sure we have your correct email address on file.
|Q: I like the symposia! Why not have them quarterly? (instead of semi-annually?)||A: We are glad you like the Symposia; your executive puts a lot of effort into designing and planning these sessions so they will benefit our members. |
DRIE-SWO did try holding quarterly ‘half day’ sessions a little while ago but meeting attendance for them was lower.
With members widely dispersed geographically, we adopted full day symposia to provide more networking, optimized travel time, etc.
