Akron Section SPE Members:

The Board of Directors of the Akron Section and I welcome you to our 2017-2018 professional activities. First, let me thank Robert Weiler for the excellent job he did last year in putting together a super program. If you haven’t been to a section meeting lately, you are missing a lot. Attendance is up and the programs have been very interesting. With the support of Rik Keeley and Jon Sovis from the Cleveland chapter, we have another interesting and educational program of technical and social meetings for you to enjoy this year.

I’m looking forward to meeting you at an upcoming Akron SPE event.

Tom McQuaide,
President 2017-2018 Akron Section of SPE
