SPIE is partnering with Anthony Fasano, PE, the Engineering Career Coach, to host a Professional Development Webinar Series that started October 2016 exclusively for SPIE Members. Registration is open for the third webinar, How to Develop the Engineer Leader Inside of You, on 14 March 2017.
Nothing beats face to face networking, but if you can't attend regular conferences, the SPIE group on social networking sites such as LinkedIn and Facebook, are the next best alternative.
