Get involved

SPE understands that voluntireeism is the basis for the Society's existence, because only you as professionals working in the industry may determine its primary needs and current issues. Therefore, SPE appreciates each volunteer's contribution.

Unfortunately, in Russia and Caspian volunteerism is not so widespread as in some other regions and requires the additional inflow of enthusiastic people who are ready to share their knowledge, spend some time to contribute to the industry enhancement. SPE realizes that you are busy with the routine work, so it takes all efforts to make everything you're doing for SPE projects as comfortable and time-saving as possible.

It is important to highlight that vounteerism is advantageous both for SPE and you, because as volunteer you can:

  • influence programs and activities that drive our mission with your knowledge and experience
  • enhance your leadership skills
  • meet and work with other members from across the globe
  • contribute in your area of interest at both the local and international level
That is why we encourage our members to consider volunteering.
