The SWE UCLA officer elections were held in order to transition into the 2017-2018 board. There were some familiar faces looking to move up their officer position, while there were plenty of new faces looking for a spot on the board. The new faces mainly consisted of members from the Evening with Industry Committee, Major Committee, and Outreach Committee. There were plenty of great platforms and innovative ideas to improve each position and everyone voted for the candidate that they wanted. If there was only one person running for the position, then the person must receive a unanimous hand raise vote to obtain the position. In addition to the existing positions, a new position called the “Recruitment and Alumni Relations Director” was filled and we are excited to see the outcomes from this new position. Overall, the newly elected board demonstrates a great range of diversity that will help us cultivate more ideas to promote equality in engineering.
