SPIE honors service and career excellence with Senior Member promotions


03 August 2012

BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA -- SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, has promoted 122 nominees to Senior Member status this year in recognition of their professional experience, active involvement with the optics community and SPIE, and significant performance that sets them apart from their peers.

The promotions were announced 12 July by the SPIE Board of Directors, following nominations by the Membership subcommittee chaired by Craig Olson (L-3 Communications).

"This was a very impressive group of highly qualified nominees," Olson said. "It is inspiring to see how dedicated these individuals are to working through SPIE to advance knowledge in their fields."

Candidates must be existing SPIE members and meet extensive criteria including dedicated service to the SPIE community through participation in events, publications, committees, and volunteer work, professional experience, technical leadership, technical accomplishments, and professional contributions.

See the complete list of SPIE Senior Members on the society website.

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. The Society serves nearly 225,000 constituents from approximately 150 countries, offering conferences, continuing education, books, journals, and a digital library in support of interdisciplinary information exchange, professional growth, and patent precedent. SPIE provided over $2.7 million in support of education and outreach programs in 2011.
