Jeff Spath is the nominee for 2014 Society of Petroleum Engineers president. He and nine others make up the slate of nominees recommended for SPE Board positions by the society’s Nominating Committee and Board of Directors.
These recommendations are based on nominations submitted via SPE’s nominating process. Anyone can nominate a candidate for a Board position. The nomination period opens in September each year, and runs through 1 December for the position of president, and through 15 December for other open Board positions. Next year’s list of open positions, nominee qualifications, and nomination forms, as well as further submission guidelines, will be available sometime during September. The nomination process involves filling out an online nomination form and attaching supporting documents that include a CV, résumé, and letters of support.
