USC Student Chapter and LASPE receive Awards for Excellence, SPE more Digital & Virtual, SPE Leadership Changes
This is late news, but I would like to congratulate the University of Southern California (USC) on being a 2020 SPE student chapter award winner. USC was recognized with the Student Chapter Excellence Award, the second-highest award student chapters can receive. It recognizes student chapters that have accomplished an admirable level of success. I would also like to congratulate Baldev Gill, the rest last years’ board, and all the members of SPE Los Angeles Basin; LA Basin was recognized with the 2020 Section Excellence Award Recipients. You can read more about the awards here: Student Awards Link and Section Awards.
The global pandemic has financially affected SPE and changes are necessary to reduce losses where possible. SPE has experienced a reduction in funding from multiple sources, especially from the large conferences which fund much of SPE’s outreach. Journal of Petroleum Technology (JPT) will move to digital-only to reduce the losses associated with printing and to offset the reduction of ad revenue. JPT may transition back in the future when the economics for printing is more viable, but SPE has not provided a definitive date. The SPEI website has been undergoing planned changes despite the chaos in the world and will sport a new look, which we hope you will find easier to navigate. Check it out when you get a chance.
