SPE is inviting volunteers to become members of its opinion panel to help shape the future development of the society’s products and services.
Panel members actively participate in giving feedback about the organization and its programs and contribute to industry and technical topic research by engaging in various research efforts throughout the year as needed. Identities of the panel members will not be made public, and all responses will be kept confidential and will not be attributed to members directly.
Members will be asked to:
- Complete up to six online surveys (which must be completed within 10 business days) during the year.
- Serve on online or in-person focus groups (depending on the research needs at the time).
- Participate in telephone interviews if needed.
Survey completion should take no more than 15 to 30 minutes per survey. Telephone interviews may take up to 30 minutes. Focus groups may take between 3 and 4 hours. The total time commitment varies throughout the year, depending on whether the panel member participates in focus groups. Panel members must be SPE members in good standing.
