President's Letter

Happy Fall everyone!  Hopefully we are officially done with summer and can finally enjoy some cooler weather (hopefully much cooler followed by much higher gas prices).  I want to extend a special thanks to the members and sponsors that participated in events throughout the summer.  Girl’s Night Out and some unofficial networking events were well attended and provided good opportunities to stay in touch through our off-season.  Several members attended the AAPL Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh and had a great experience.  We certainly appreciate Nick Watkins and all that he has done to represent the OCAPL as our AAPL Director over the last couple of years.

I’d like to encourage everyone to continue utilizing the opportunities offered by the OCAPL, and AAPL, in order to grow your network and improve your knowledge and skillsets.  We have several of our major annual events coming up including Weekend Takeoff, Fall Field Landman Seminar, and the Fun Run & Fall Festival.  If you haven’t been to the Fun Run, or might not even be the running type, still come down and check it out.  There are a lot of fun things for the entire family! Thanks to Dan Dickensheet and Heather Rohlmeier for all their hard work organizing and co-chairing a great event. 

You still have a chance to earn a few more CE credits this year with three more educational luncheons coming up.  Thank you to Clarke Richards, Chase Payton and Philp LeBaron for lining up such a great group of speakers this year!

A huge thank you to the many people who serve OCAPL year over year and make the wheels go around for one of the largest and most active Landman Associations in the country.  If you’re looking for a way to get more involved, I would encourage you to reach out to one of the officers or board members as opportunities frequently arise throughout each year.  It has been my honor to serve as part of the leadership of this great Association over the last several years, and I look forward to many more.  Best wishes for the rest of the year to each of you!
