It looks like we may have made it through winter without much winter weather this year. Although we sometimes had a little snow and ice, it was nothing like other parts of the country have experienced this season. I don’t know about you, but our mild winter didn’t bother me a bit. I know we could use the moisture, but rain instead of snow is just fine with me. Hopefully, that darn groundhog’s prediction does not include Kansas, and spring will be here soon.

You should have received your EKOGA dues invoice in early February. For those who have paid your 2023 dues, on behalf of myself and the EKOGA board of directors, THANK YOU! We appreciate your continued support of the association. Your dues help EKOGA fight the actions of legislators and regulators to impose more onerous and expensive demands on our industry. If you haven’t returned your dues payment, please consider doing so soon. Remember, We are Stronger Together.

The Kansas Oil & Gas Day Legislative Breakfast was a success. We had a good number of members and legislators attend. I don’t particularly like doing this kind of stuff, so I am grateful to all who made the trip to Topeka. I hope everyone enjoyed the breakfast and was able to talk with legislators about our issues. Thank you to our sponsors, CVR Refining, Fidelis Energy Group, and Trimble & Maclaskey Oil.
You should have received a  Save the Date postcard about our  Mid-Year meeting on May 4 at Top Golf. Plan to join us as we hear from economist Chris Kuehl about how federal and state politics and economic trends affect our industry. Of course, we will enjoy a  few hours of food, fun, and Top Golf play. And don’t forget about the refreshing beverages. You can find more information on the Mid-Year at Top Golf on page 10.

Finally, a reminder to mark September 27-28 for the EKOGA Annual Meeting at Prairie Band Casino and Resort.
