STLE celebrates the work and support of our volunteers for their dedication in advancing the science of tribology and lubrication engineering and growing our professional society. We are pleased to recognize the contributions of our nearly 300 volunteers that serve on our committees and local sections. These individuals are helping to lead the Society into the future and develop the next generation of tribology and lubrication professionals. Thank you for your service to STLE—we couldn’t do this without you!

Interested in volunteering?  We have both short-term opportunities and one-year term local section and committee appointments. Click here to learn about current openings and check back throughout the year for more. Please note you must be a current STLE member to serve on any STLE committee.
