Chairman's Message

Chairman's Message - April 2018

Dear Members,

It is a new quarter and a renewed energy has captivated the markets. If you missed it BV crude is trading above $71 and MWSS isn’t far behind at $66. Recent analysis has credited this surge to easing trade war tensions with China and a recent attack by Yemen on Saudi Aramco (no material damage reported so this inflection could quickly subside). Hopefully prices can sustain this new high.

If you or any of your colleges have interest we are now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 board. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to network, serve, and boost that resume! I am yet to meet someone that has regretted volunteering their time. The application form is on the next page. The deadline for applying is May 15th and voting will take place during the month of June.

That said I have a quick correction to note. We canceled our April golf tournament, but it has officially been rescheduled for September 14th. That’s right! We have moved from a spring tournament to a fall tournament. As you can imagine this was primarily done to avoid conflicts with other organizations and maximize the potential revenue for scholarships.

As always, I would love to hear your comments and ideas about how we can better serve our members. Please feel free to contact me at
