The Akron Section SPE has been selected as a recipient of the 2017 Pinnacle Gold Award.  This award recognizes Sections and Divisions that demonstrate superior performance in creating member value in four categories: organization, technical programming, membership and communication.  The Akron section has received the Pinnacle Gold every year since 2008.

The Akron Section has also earned the 2017 Communications Excellence Award. The purpose of the award is to recognize Sections, Divisions and Special Interest Group (SIGs) that carry out highly effective communications with their groups and, optionally, with other parts of the Society during the course of the SPE year.  It is intended to recognize all types and forms of communications as opposed to being focused on one medium or method of communication and information delivery. The award has been received multiple times by the Akron Section.
