Nov 7, 2018: University Scholarship Program WINNERS.


Sept 18, 2018: Since 2013, SPE Thailand has 100% subsidized Members attendance fees at our Monthly Meetings.

Note that the fees for Members will still be significantly subsidized, hence we would encourage all Non- Members to consider joining SPE.

SPE member with Registration: 500 THB

SPE member without Registration: 700 THB

Non-SPE member with Registration: 1000 THB
