Qualifications and Experience
An SPE Energy Ambassador is recruited by Energy Information Committee members, based on personal knowledge of their speaking skills. An ambassador is an experienced and articulate senior-level engineer or manager.
Expected Time Commitment
Goal is one speaking engagement per year. The time involved includes a short orientation at ATCE for new ambassadors. For each speaking engagement, the ambassador spends about 4 hours of preparation time, and about one-half day on the actual day of a local speaking opportunity. Some ambassadors are requested to travel to a location, which requires a minimum of one full day for short trips, or as much as two full days for more distant locations.
