On Thursday March 23, Cinco Energy’s Mike Gibson, past President of Houston Association of Professional Landmen (HAPL), joined representatives of other regional Landman Associations in Austin, Texas for a TxALA meeting. to discuss news and issues effecting local landmen and regional associations. This meeting coincided with Texas Energy Day as lawmakers were in session at the Capitol. Those that attended included representatives from local AAPL chapters in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Permian. Issues discussed included how to include greater regional outreach for charitable events and how to better represent and grow regional membership. We support Mike and the other members of TxALA as they strive to unite local associations in Texas and the future generations of Texas Landmen.
