PRESIDENT’S LETTER - November 2022
As we keep hoping that the snow won’t fly soon, I can’t believe we are already nearing the end of the year. Many things have been accomplished this year and we hope to keep that momentum going into the next year.
In Wyoming energy news—Revenue and production of oil, gas, and coal have markedly improved from last year due to increasing prices and looming strikes and political climate. Wyoming is currently fairing nicely, but the governor does not want us to forget the volatility over the past few years. The University of Wyoming has been selected to participate in phase 1 of the DOE’s 2023 Collegiate Wind Competition. Ready Wyoming, a transmission expansion project by Black Hills Energy has been approved by regulators and is set to begin in 2023.
We are taking nominations for many board positions for next year, we will be nominating and voting in November and placing officers at the Christmas party on December 3rd. If you would like to volunteer some of your time next year or have an idea for activities for our members, we would love you have you participate in whatever capacity you can! We will be creating an activities committee with SPE to focus on activities to spur increased member participation, so if you don’t feel you have enough time to dedicate to a board position, consider participating in the activities committee. Contact any WGA member for more information.
Stop by and visit Maureen at our new offices, we have many free books still available for our members.
Thank you to all field trip participants, and we hope to see you all again in the next field season.
Have a wonderful Veterans Day November 11th and a Happy Thanksgiving!!
Amy Freye, WGA President, 2022
