It is a special honor and a privilege to serve as President for the Petroleum Accountants Society of Houston as we begin our organization’s 66th year. I am Suellen King and I will be one of your leaders for the 2018-2019 year as we travel this journey together. I have been in oil and gas accounting and finance for twenty plus years (yikes, where does the time go). In my opinion this is one of the most fun, dynamic and very important industry to be associated with. I just love it, otherwise, I probably would not be in Houston but sitting on a beach somewhere sipping margaritas.
Even though I have only been coming to meetings and involved in COPAS for six years now, the society and all of its members hold a special place in my heart. As you know there is constantly a lot of work to be done whether arranging speakers, signing hotel contracts, planning a picnic or re-writing documents. What I am thankful for is that we laugh together and have a good time accomplishing all that we do. I want to extend an enormous thank you to all of our current and previous society leaders. It takes a village and we all succeed together!
The current Board of Directors have some great things planned for you. We hope to have an increase in New Professional Committee meetings and other networking opportunities, increased communication between the Board and the membership as well as improvement updates to the website. This year we would also like to focus on building our membership. We need to be encouraging new members to join as well as inspire more engagement from our existing members. We want to strive to make the impossible possible while having fun doing so. We want to hear from you. The Board is here to support you and the society’s objectives. Last but not least, if you have burning desire to work with the coolest individuals on the planet and change the world, we may have an opportunity for you.
We are very excited about the year ahead and hope to see all of you at the upcoming meetings!
