SPE members can communicate with each other through the SPE Google Group. Please note that you must be a member in order to be sent an invitation to the SPE Google Group. All members will be sent an invitation to join the Google group. Please make sure you check your email, including your spam box, for the invitation, and to respond to it. If you do not receive an invitation shortly (approx. 7 days) after doing so, please contact Cecilea Mun. If you are an SPE member and do not have access to the group, please complete the SPE GOOGLE GROUP REQUEST FORM (linked below).
Benefits of the SPE Google Group:
Receive SPE announcements.
Share external information with SPE members.
Create and participate in topic related sub-group discussions.
Network with other SPE members.
However, we would appreciate it if every member is respectful of other members' time and to have the values of diversity and inclusiveness in mind when reaching out to others. A good rule of thumb for networking is to first send out an email to the entire group and to work with those who respond. Another good rule of thumb is to only contact a particular member if they are the only person who can help you with your concern. Furthermore, please do not be offended if a particular member does not respond to your email. In most cases it does not reflect anything about the sender and it instead could reflect the receiver's status of being over committed. None of this, however, should deter members to reach out to other members since one would never know whether or how another member can help unless one does so.
