I hope everyone is off to a great start in 2014. In 2013 we saw great participation in our monthly SPE luncheons and Bryson is working hard to continue to book quality speakers throughout the 2014 year. Please continue to provide suggestions for topics and speakers you would like to see.

It is also that time of the year again to renew SPE memberships if you have not already done so. You can either renew by mail or easily online. SPE memberships provide not only great industry resources and networking capabilities but also come with a subscription to JPT each month and many discounts to members for short courses and conference registrations.

Also approaching quickly is the Nineteenth semiannual SPE Improved Oil Recovery Symposium held in Tulsa, Oklahoma April 12th-16th. Details, including short course offerings and a schedule of events, can be found at www.speior.org. Discounted registration is open until March 14th.
