SPE Fort Worth

Chairperson's Newsletter - August 2022
A Changing of the Guard

Fort Worth SPE Section,

BrileyHicks.jpgFirst, I wanted to say how thankful I am to be able to serve as Chairperson this year for the section during its 70th year. Frank Syfan left some large shoes to fill, but, with the strength of the 2022-2023 board, I am confident that we will have an educational and rewarding year. If you would like to reach out to Frank, please let me know and I will share how to get in contact.

Our first meeting of the fall will be on September 15th at 11:30 at the City Club. As September’s speaker we will be welcoming back Dwayne Purvis to speak on, “The Next U.S. Oil Boom is #Counterstream.” You can register by CLICKING HERE or by going directly to the Fort Worth Section’s page.

Some of you may have already noticed, but the price for our monthly meetings has gone up to $35.00 per person after pricing increases occurred at our venue for their food and services. Failure to make this change would result in a financial loss for the Fort Worth section each month that would take away from our scholarship funds.

Please note, this price increase is made for the purpose of breaking even each month, and not for the purpose of profit. If we can reduce prices for monthly section meetings while meeting these goals, we will.

Before wrapping up this month’s note, I want to share with you the team that works together to keep things moving for the Fort Worth Section. Some of these positions are more outwardly visible to the membership than others, but each and every one of them are essential to keeping the Fort Worth Section moving forward.
