A Message From Your President
It is with great pleasure that I serve as your Fort Worth Society President for the 2019-2020 year. Founded in 1952, our chapter is one of COPAS’s earliest. We serve oil and gas professionals in Fort Worth and surrounding areas, and boast active membership of over 100 individuals working in the energy industry. I personally have enjoyed being a part of this organization for several years, and at every event I find there is someone new to meet and something new to learn.
We would like to thank those of you who served as officers, served on our board of directors, and those who volunteered in our various chair positions during the 2018-2019 year. It was a great year and will be hard to beat!
During our summer months we have taken advantage of our break from our monthly luncheons for strategic planning and goal setting. For the 2019-2020 year, Fort Worth will continue to host monthly meetings on the 2nd Tuesday from September through April at the City Club of Fort Worth. Our goals for this year include offering more networking opportunities to our members, doing more community outreach and involvement, and ensuring we are securing diverse, engaging, and informative speakers for our monthly meetings. With these goals in mind, we plan to rollout a redesign of our website and social media sites to provide members with information, resources, and upcoming events that are easily accessible and that provide more avenues for our members to connect with each other. Stay tuned for our progress and updates.
In addition to ringing in the new COPAS year, our chapter has endowments in place at three local universities, including The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), Texas Christian University (TCU), and Texas Wesleyan University (TWU). Each endowment was established with an initial donation of $10,000, and we are pleased to announce that these endowments continue to provide financial assistance to students in our surrounding community, with scholarships being awarded again this year.
Whether you are brand-new to FWPAS or COPAS or have been part of our organization for years, we encourage you to attend an event, bring a friend, speak up, ask questions, and get involved! I look forward to seeing you throughout our 2019-2020 year!
