  • New Section Board 2018-2019 announcement

    ​Dear Members of the SPE Italian Section,

    The elections of the Board 2018 - 2019 are over!
    We received 88 votes. One is duplicated and one is affirmative but invalid (completely anonymous), so we have 86 valid votes. Among the valid votes, we have 84 YES and 2 NO.

    Consequently the proposed 2018 - 2019 Board is approved!

    The two NO did not leave any comments, so that we do not have clues about the reason. Whatever you don’t like or would like to improve is a welcome comment!
    During the year, we are going to ask your opinion more frequently, with the same method of the elections, and we hope you will not be shy.

    Two additional short comments.
    We have been asked to increase the number of events related to Drilling and Completion disciplines. This is something we were discussing since a few weeks before the elections, and we will try to do it soon in the definition of the 2018 - 2019 Program of events. If you have any specific suggestion, please let us know.
    Lastly, I would really like to thank the past Board directors and also thank the members who accepted to be part of the new Board. All of us are completely volunteer and such an engagement is an act of generosity that I will never cease to appreciate.

    I wish happy holidays to all of you!
    See you in September.
