SPE is governed by a 27-member board of directors composed of member representatives from around the world. Each of SPE's regions and board-endorsed technical specialties are represented by a director. These directors, together with two at-large directors, the president, president-elect, immediate past president, and vice president of finance, constitute the SPE Board of Directors.
The nominating committee is chaired by the immediate past president and meets in January to make recommendations for the available positions. View the 2013 Nominating Committee Roster.
The recommendation of the Nominating Committee is submitted to the Board of Directors for ratification at its March meeting. Biographical information on approved nominees is provided to the membership via SPE.org and through an article in the April issue of the Journal of Petroleum Technology.
The SPE Constitution provides for these nominees to stand as elected unless SPE members nominate additional candidates by 1 June. Additional nominations require a petition from at least 1% of SPE membership or, for Regional Director nominees, 1% of the region’s membership (with no more than 75% of the petitioners from any one section). The Constitution also specifies provisions for a ballot election if any qualified petitions are received by 1 June.
