SPIE Officers and Directors

SPIE Officers and Directors

SPIE is an international organization incorporated as a not-for-profit United States corporation. The Membership operates the Society through an elected Board of Directors, who establish various standing and ad hoc committees to conduct activities of interest to the Membership.

The Board and its Executive Committee also establish policy and strategy, assure that the Society Bylaws are followed in the conduct of Society business, and approve the budgets for expenditure of Society resources.

The collective talents of our Members make the Society a powerful force in the scientific community. Shaping the direction of that force are the members of the SPIE Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and Standing Committees.

SPIE Officers, Board Members and Committee Chairs can be contacted by emailing governance@spie.org.
