MIKE CORNELIUS, MOGA
A sincere thank you to everyone who attended the 2017 Michigan Crude Oil and Natural Gas Industry Legislative Education Day! We appreciate the partnership that brought together the powerful voices of the Michigan Oil and Gas Association, the Michigan Association of Professional Landmen, the Northern Michigan Chapter of API and the Bay Area Desk and Derrick Club.
Your voices in Lansing makes a difference! In a term-limited legislature, nothing can compare to having the hard-working men and women who are part of an important industry go to legislative offices with a positive message. Your efforts will make a big difference in creating a more positive tenor in legislative conversations over the next two years!
We encourage you to stay connected to your elected officials throughout the year by attending local coffee hours or in-district events in your hometown. These are great opportunities to continue to build real relationships with your elected officials.
- Legislative Education Day by the numbers:
- 100 Legislative meetings with legislators and staff
- 80 MOGA/ MAPL/ NMCAPI/ BADDC members attending legislative meetings and events
- Over 50 legislative offices at the cocktail reception
- Over 30 partner organizations, DEQ, and DNR attendees at the cocktail reception, including the Director of the DEQ, the Director of the DNR, the Deputy Director of the DEQ and the Chief of the Office of Oil, Gas and Minerals.
Just a few of the positive comments we got on the meetings from the legislative offices:
“We enjoyed the meeting. Thank you!” – Senator Hune’s office.
“Thank you! We appreciate your willingness to assist with questions moving forward. Glad we were able to set something up.” – Representative Steve Johnson.
“Senator Horn appreciates you all for stopping by our office and sharing the great information on Michigan Oil and Gas! We will be sure to contact you with further questions.” – Senator Horn’s office.
