The committee reviews any and all SPE programs, which support the SPE section operations with the exception of the Distinguished Lecturer program. The committee will also be responsible for selecting winners of the President’s Award for Section Excellence annually, as well as any other forms of section recognition that might be established, pending Board approval.
The committee is composed of up to 12 members plus a chairperson, for a maximum total of 13 possible members. Ideally should be made to include representatives from each major continent. A vice-chairperson will be appointed by the President-elect each year and will normally be the chairperson the following year. Terms are for three years and are staggered so that approximately one-third of the committee rolls off each year. Terms of office expire immediately following ATCE in the fall.
It is not mandatory to physically attend the annual committee meeting although it is encouraged when possible. Much of the committee work can be accomplished successfully through other means of communication (email and teleconference).
