Dear SPE Aberdeen members, colleagues and friends,
It’s time to get involved!
SPE Aberdeen launches the 2020-2021 session on Wednesday September 2nd with our annual Kick Off meeting. The main aim of the evening is to give attendees the opportunity to learn more about what SPE Aberdeen does and find a volunteering opportunity that matches their interests and time commitments. We know that some members love the technical exchange work of SPE and are passionate about finding the right speakers that keep us at the forefront of the current industry debates. Others love to pass their love of an engineering career on to the next generation – we have opportunities to talk to students of all ages from primary school to PhD!
When it comes to time commitments, we know that volunteering can never be anyone’s first priority. So we have a range of volunteering opportunities to suit the time commitment individuals can afford. Some people can only participate outside of normal office hours, others work for companies that allow a volunteering day once a year while others can align their SPE meetings around other elements of their schedules. Volunteers at the kick off meeting know about these challenges and can help you find the right opportunity for you.
This year’s event will be digital. The format will be a short(!) introduction to SPE Aberdeen and then the opportunity to join virtual break-out rooms where you will have the opportunity to hear about the different committees’ work from active volunteers and be in a small enough group to ask all the questions you have.
It is going to be a great evening; you don’t have to be a current SPE member to attend the kick off meeting and you can sign up here.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
Best wishes and stay safe,
SPE Aberdeen Chair
