2017-2018 Membership Points System


How will your involvement be recognized within SPE?

We are very fortunate to have more than 450 talented, and diverse members in our chapter. We have realized that our members make up our identity of who we are. Essentially, we wouldn’t be anywhere without our members. To pass down the benefits of our prestigious chapter to our members, the 2017-2018 officers have spent several hours on research and planning, to come up with an elaborate point system that will reward all our members based on the efforts and devotion they put in for our chapter. The point system will award all members for their hard work with our chapter beginning from May 15th, 2017 and will be in place continuously till May 15th of 2018.

We are proud to announce that the 2017-2018 school year will be a year full of extremely fun conferences, field trips, training sessions, and so many other events. All these events and activities are for the sole purpose of benefiting our members by exposing them to the technical knowledge of our industry, networking with professionals, and making friends for life. In the Point system, members will be designated into three categories: Gold, Silver and General. At the end of each month, all members will be ranked in terms of highest cumulative points. Top 20 members will become Gold, Top 21 – 45 members will become Silver, and the rest of the members will be considered General members.

When an event closes in and has limited spots, Gold members will be automatically selected, and Silver members will be added to the wait-list ahead of General members. The biggest event in 2017 is the ATCE conference in San Antonio, where we plan to represent our chapter with around 35 members. The tables and the PDF below will guide you through regarding our Point System. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
