During the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) ANTEC 2016, SPE will honor the newest Fellows of the Society, which are members who have made outstanding contributions in plastics science, engineering, or management.

Candidates for the Fellows honor must be sponsored by an SPE Division or Special Interest Group. The SPE Fellows Election Committee considers eligible candidates on the basis of a personal history as well as written sponsorships from two SPE members. Only 321 members, counting the newest inductees, have been elected Fellows since the honor was established in 1984.
