SWIFT Super Users - Regions

For now we are launching the SWIFT User Group in the U.S. and Canada only. The plan is to expand to other countries later this year. To make sure we get valuable input and also account for regional birding habits and preferences, we are limiting the enrolment in the SWIFT Super User program to three individuals per region as shown in the two maps below. Seven regions in each country for a total of 42 Super Users. So if you live in a region that does not yet have its three Super Users, act quickly to apply before the region is full! This page will be updated with the counts for each region as users are added to the Super User group.
