What is an SPE Forum?
SPE Forums are unique, by-invitation-only SPE events that bring together top technologists, innovators, and managers to address a specific industry challenge. Participation in a forum builds a professional network that will enhance a career for a lifetime. Participants are encouraged to come prepared to contribute their experience and knowledge, rather than be spectators or students. The objective is to create a collaborative, idea-generating arena that stimulates new ideas and innovation about future challenges facing the E&P industry.
Who should participate?
- Experienced professionals who want to exchange ideas with others in your area of technical expertise. Forums offer an exclusive opportunity to interact with innovators, seasoned professionals, and leading technologists.
- Young professionals with relevant experience and knowledge of the forum topic. Forums are a window on the future that belongs to the next generation of professionals.
Participants at SPE Forums are selected by the Forum Steering Committee based on the ability to contribute to the discussion of the topic. Attendance is limited to maximize each person's opportunity to contribute. For more details: SPE Forums

But education can only be successful if we first achieve a level of trust within the community. Building trust requires developing an understanding of the community. One of the most important approaches is for operators to understand the needs and expectations of the communities where we operate, and for project teams to educate themselves about the expectations of the local community that will be impacted by a project.
Each community is unique; the challenges are multifaceted. Join Trey Shaffer (SPE HSSE-SR Technical Director) and Howard Duhon (SPE PFC Technical Director) during this session at ATCE 2015 as they explore some notable industry efforts in community engagement and education as well as critical success factors for effective community engagement.
