Committee Chair: Jeannie Smith and Mark Brinsden About the Committee The Energy Information Committee serves to guide and promote the society's global programs to inform students and the general public of the value the petroleum industry provides to the quality of our everyday lives. Although this is primarily an advisory committee that receives substantial staff support from SPE, committee members do provide an important source of hands-on help and access to resources, in addition to serving as champions of the program. Representatives of the following member groups and others have been selected to provide insight, network relationships, and leverage member technical expertise that helps advance our programs: Sections, including the Americas, Aberdeen, the Middle East, and China University professors to provide insight from the student level Company representatives interested in the support of science and math education In 2014, the committee divided into two subcommittees, one focused on classroom education and the other on public awareness. Committee Activities and Accomplishments (October 2014 to September 2015) The committee supports globally the growth of SPE's energy education program, energy4me .

Events and publications are the main SPE activities through which technology is disseminated. The SPE Board of Directors (Board) is committed to producing quality products for its members, at reasonable cost, while maintaining financial stability within the organization and providing for continued growth of programs and services. Financial stability is a multifaceted term that has components involving income, expenses, and liability issues, as well as protecting the tax-exempt, not-for-profit status of SPE. When issues involving technology dissemination and financial stability are combined, one of the most important functions is planning and conducting consistent quality events. To assure that SPE maintains quality, the SPE Board has adopted this policy governing the planning, conduct, and evaluation of any event where the SPE imprimatur (the SPE name and/or logo) is used or where SPE is otherwise associated, either directly or indirectly.
