Volunteer with SPE

Thousands of volunteers around the world provide the energy that makes the Society function. We are grateful to these members and encourage other members to consider volunteering.

As a 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

Student Members: Contact your student chapter to let them know you are interested in volunteering for student chapter activities.

Get started

  1. Review detailed descriptions of the volunteer opportunities for professional members only.
  2. Find the opportunities of interest to you.
  3. Complete or update an existing application.

Standing committee appointments are made in April, while program committee appointments and local sections appoint volunteers throughout the year. We also have frequent openings for volunteers looking to serve on the SPE Opinion Panel or as speakers for Energy4Me. If you didn’t apply for any of these positions and would like to, you can update your application at any time by logging in to your SPE profile.

If you are selected for an opportunity, you will be contacted either by phone, email, or letter regarding the opportunity.
