The work of the Society is largely done by the following six standing committees and their respective subcommittees.
Each committee is led by a committee chair, or co-chairs, and has a staff liaison assigned to it. To join a standing committee, or subcommittee, fill out and submit this volunteer application. The Board of Directors will review applications and make appointments on a rolling basis.
Approved committee members can access their committee's group pages through the member only section of the SFPE website.To access, click “Sign In” on the top right of the site and select “Manage Profile.” This will take you to the SFPE FORUM where you should select "Groups" from the top navigation bar. You will then see a list of the groups you are a member of and can select one to access.
On January 9, 2019 the SFPE Committee Operations Manual was adopted.
