A Technical Section represents a grouping of global members who share an interest in a specific technical topic. These communities of SPE members share ideas, promote competence, and develop projects related to their technical interest. Technical Sections tend to be more task-oriented than discussion-oriented. They meet virtually for the most part, but are encouraged to hold a face-to-face meeting at least once a year. The Technical Sections Operations Manual (TSOM) is your go-to source for information about how to conduct your technical section activities. You can learn about your individual role and find the forms and deadlines associated with your duties. Questions may be directed to your staff liaison, or to email@example.com.
Committee Chair: Mark Brinsden About the Committee The Energy Information Committee guides and promotes SPE's global programs to inform students and the public of the petroleum industry's value. 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, access to resources and Energy4me champions. The committee is divided into two subcommittees one focused on classroom education and the other on public awareness. This past year, the committee has focused on encouraging sections and chapters to conduct Energy4me presentations in their communities. Committee Activities and Accomplishments (October 2017 to September 2018) The committee supports globally the growth of SPE's energy education program, Energy4me. They used our hands-on activities to great success UNI Student Chapter: visited two schools Texas A&M Student Chapter: conducted a career day program using Energy4me hands-on activities to illustrate technical concepts UTM Student Chapter: did a school visit, using five Energy4me hands-on activities MIT Pune Student Chapter: multiple workshops over 30 days; reached over 450 students Alexandria Student Chapter: conducted three-month campaign in schools with part of their program consisting of the Energy4me hands-on activities Energy4me staff conducted workshops in six countries, including a first-ever event in Oman.
