Recognition

We recognize our members for a variety of SPE activities, such as maintaining membership for a minimum of 25 continuous years, recruiting members and peer review participation.

Maintain Membership

25-year Club Member

With at least 25 years of continuous membership in SPE, this select group of members is welcomed to visit with peers in the 25-Year Club Lounge during the SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition. A member reaching this distinction also receives a special certificate and lapel pin..

Senior Member

After 30 years of continuous membership with SPE and the age of 65, a member is automatically upgraded to Senior Member. Senior Members receive a 50% reduction in membership fees. A 30-year member at age 60 who is retired may submit a written request to SPE Customer Service for senior member status.

Legion of Honor

After 50 years of continuous membership in SPE, a member is automatically inducted into the Legion of Honor. Members in the Legion of Honor are exempt from dues for life. They also receive a commemorative plaque and lapel pin in honor of their achievement, free registration for all SPE Annual Technical Conference and Exhibitions, and recognition in the Journal of Petroleum Technology.

A Peer Apart Recognition

We recognize the dedicated members who have been involved in the peer review of 100 or more papers. Members who commit their time to peer review papers make substantial contributions to the industry’s literature by helping to ensure that the papers published in SPE’s technical journals are of the highest quality. Over time, these individuals volunteer hundreds of hours to the Society, making SPE journals a valuable resource for the industry.
