2013 SPIE Senior Members

58 New Senior Members Elected

SPIE Senior Members are Members of distinction who will be honored for their professional experience, their active involvement with the optics community and SPIE, and/or significant performance that sets them apart from their peers. While similar in some ways to the Society's Fellows program, Senior Member recognition is a separate category that will be more accessible to active Members earlier in their careers, as well as other Members in a broader constituency.

Senior Members can apply for this distinction by completing and submitting the nomination form, or be nominated by a colleague or mentor. Nominations will be reviewed by the SPIE Membership Committee who will then submit their recommendations to the SPIE Board of Directors for approval.  Please view Senior Member nomination criteria before applying.

Nominate a colleague.

Printable nomination poster available here.
  Download, print and post in your workplace to encourage other SPIE members to nominate a colleague - or nominate themselves.  The next nomination submission deadline is 15 April 2014.
