May 2016 Newsletter

I don't know about you, but May has often marked the start of the busiest part of the year for those in the energy industry. To me, this means more opportunities to share with clients and colleagues alike lessons learned and new developments in our ever-changing industry.

Separately, I'm pleased to announce we've made some headway on our 17th Annual Forum to be held this year at a new venue, the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, CO on Wednesday, October 26th. So please, SAVE THE DATE!! 
Our theme for this year's forum is "Our Changing Energy Landscape". It will focus on how changes in our industry will affect each of you in different parts our industry. We think you'll all like the new venue and hope you'll stay to join us for Happy Hour following the event.

Sincerely,
Steve Morgan, PE, CEM
