Chairperson's Newsletter - September 2020
Fort Worth Section Members,
I hope this message finds you and your families safe and healthy. We are excited to get back to our SPE Presentation season. Briley Hicks, this year’s Program Chairperson, has been working hard to put together a series of presentations for you to all enjoy. He has aimed to make each presentation focus on applicable topics considering the current price environment we find ourselves in.
This has been a trying time for everyone, and our industry has struggled more than most. I hope you will all turn out for our presentations, and we can all have an hour or so a month to focus on the path forward rather than the difficulties we face day-to-day.
You will notice when you go to register for our luncheons that we will not be charging to attend our VIRTUAL presentations. However, we will be asking for a $5 donation when you register. This money goes directly towards our chapter’s primary mission of providing scholarships to deserving young students who are pursing a career in oil and gas. Last year, Steve Monroe, our Scholarship Chairperson, put together the strongest class of applicants that we have seen in some time. Your donations will allow us to continue helping top-tier students and encourage them as they pursue an energy career.
Due to the constant uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we have scheduled all our presentations as virtual presentations. If we get any information that changes our minds in that regard, we will do our best to move later meetings to in-person meetings.
I would also like to introduce our 2020-21 Board for the Fort Worth Chapter of SPE. You will notice that we are still lacking a secretary this year. If you or someone you know know is interested in the position, please let me know.
Thank you all for your support during this difficult time in our industry.
