It is a great pleasure to welcome everyone to the 2019-2020 year of activities for the Powder River Basin Section of the SPE. The board and I are looking forward to a great year of speakers and activities within our great community. This chapter has been active for more than 30 years and the current board of directors and I are striving to uphold the traditions and beliefs of the members current and past. There is a great lineup of distinguished lecturers, featured speakers and great meals at the Towers West lodge each month through the winter except December. We have our annual Christmas dinner and invite all to come and celebrate the season.
This chapter celebrates all the volunteers that we need throughout the year. Without them the Crawfish Boil, Golf Tournament and Scholarships could not be done. More importantly, is the community itself that gives selflessly every year to support all of our functions. Our chapter also supports a student chapter in South Dakota that has sporting clays shoot each spring for their fundraiser. Our chapter is a source of pride for all of us on the board. If you ever have any questions feel free to contact anyone. Our contact info is in each newsletter and webpage.
If there are any suggestions for speakers we would love to hear them. Please contact any of us and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.
For me, this is my 20th year being involved in this chapter. I believe in all we do and will do my best to lead this chapter with the integrity and respect it deserves.
Again... thank you, everyone, for participating, volunteering for a committee, function or board seat. Look forward to a great year!
