Professional Sections

Sections are located around the world and provide an operating framework for all major Society’s activities. Sections are semi-autonomous units and self-governing within the framework of SPE policies. Section members elect officers and directors annually. Sections are organized into geographic regions, and each region has representation on the SPE Board of Directors.

Each member of the Society is assigned by default to the nearest SPE professional section.
