Thank you for your support and making these events possible! 


I also want to thank everyone on the Executive Committee for their assistance and hard work in moving these events forward.  Most are not aware, but due to the decline in membership and the industry, the LAPL was unable to make scholarships available for the ULL Petroleum Land & Resource Management students this Spring.  On my watch, and the first time I’m aware of.  Therefore, any “meat left on the bone” from the events this week will ensure scholarships will be available next time around no matter what the future holds. So, get online, buy your tickets and attend the boil! Let’s make these events a success!


There have been flurries of activity in recent months and I hope everyone is overwhelmed with work. Hopefully, this is a sign of more things to come. That said, we continue to have openings this year for Safety Meetings and I thank S. Paul Provenza for filling the void this past March meeting at the Tap Room.  I know everyone who attended had a great time.  Also, we will soon be moving forward with elections and this is your opportunity to serve and better our organization.  Be looking for the announcements and throw your hat in the ring.  I extend my sincerest thanks for those who have served, and continue to serve and support the LAPL.
