2018 Annual Meeting


The broad theme for this year’s conference is “Embracing the Tides of Change."  Several short courses will be offered this year as well as two mornings of technical sessions, group and guest activities, social events and the Monday evening Gala and Awards Banquet.  This year's Gala Dinner will include a unique entertainment experience that will culminate in a live auction to generate donations for the various SPEE scholarship funds.  We hope that you will join us for an exciting evening of food, drinks and entertainment with good friends.  Come ready to have fun and maybe even spend a little money for a good cause!

We are pleased to announce that this year's program will include a full-day short course taught by John Hodgin from the SEC.  The complete conference agenda and program details are available at the link below.  Registration is now closed.  Check back soon for details after the conference.
