Our section has many young engineers as members. I want to remind or alert
these individuals that we have a Young Professional Committee designated specifically
for them. This committee plans technical luncheons, social gatherings, fund raisers,
and networking opportunities. This year's chairperson is Lauren Silverman. She
is working very hard to coordinate the Committee to ensure that all the events
are well planned and of interest to the young professional group. I encourage
you to attend and be a part of these activities as much as you can. Further, I
encourage you to volunteer to help this committee plan and carry out the events.
Contact Lauren today to see how you can be a part of making the Young Professional
group of SPE even more successful. Her contact e-mail is Lauren.

honor him with a presentation of this award at one of our upcoming luncheons.
