It is my pleasure to announce that registration is now open for the 2018 IPANM Annual Meeting! This year’s meeting will take place from July 25 to 27, 2018 at the award-winning Hotel Chaco in Albuquerque. This facility is top-notch and the hotel staff has worked hard to provide fantastic venues at both the new Hotel Chaco and neighboring Hotel Albuquerque to accommodate our guests.
The speaker line-up for this year’s meeting will offer numerous experts and updates on the oil and gas industry in New Mexico. Headline speakers for this year’s event feature representatives from the U.S. Department of Interior, the Independent Petroleum Association of American (IPAA), renowned climate contrarion Myron Ebell and Governor Susana Martinez. We also look forward welcoming our State Land Commissioner, Oil Conservation Director, and several other representatives from key state offices involved in oil and gas development.
I’m especially proud to announce Taya Kyle as our special guest and keynote speaker. Taya is the widow of U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle (American Sniper). Taya, who has strong connections to the Odessa area, has become a renowned American author, political commentator and military veteran’s family activist. She is a highly sought-after speaker on the national stage, so we are honored she has agreed to address our members.
To ensure your spot at the meeting, please register as soon as possible for our annual meeting and then book your hotel rooms at a special rate at Hotel Chaco. We also encourage members to bring along your family for a few days of fun. In addition to your participation, please reach out to your industry colleagues and urge them to join us for our largest annual event. It’s our hope that this conference will create a buzz within the industry in our state and bring more members into our association.
Before we could even get registration open, we’ve sold a large number of sponsorships. If you’d like to consider sponsoring this year’s annual conference, please see page 6 of the Registration Brochure on the button below and put your request in as soon as possible. They’re going fast!
Finally, please encourage your industry associates to attend this year’s Annual Meeting, even if they are not members of IPANM. We plan to use this event to market our association and encourage non-member attendees to join IPANM. We continue to proudly work hard to be the voice of the independent producers in New Mexico.
