Alliance Student Membership Program Breaks 200 Member Mark


Alliance Executive Vice President John Tintera discussed geopolitics and energy with Cockrell School of Engineering students at The University of Texas at Austin Thursday, September 28.

The Texas Alliance of Energy Producers Student Membership Program reached a major milestone in membership this month, officially surpassing the 200 member mark late this week. The program has been continually gaining momentum since its inception, and with the help of supportive Alliance staff and beneficial university partnerships, has been inching toward this threshold for the last few months. But in September alone, the program gained roughly 70 new members, thanks primarily to two major recruiting events.

The University of Houston Energy Coalition invited the Alliance to participate in the 2nd Annual UH Energy Career Fair on September 13th, where Katie Carmichael and Sandi Simon successfully recruited about 60 members. On September 28, John Tintera and Katie Carmichael gave a presentation to the University of Texas at Austin’s FracPAC group, a student organization which strives to educate their peers on the benefits on fossil fuels. This presentation resulted in more than 10 new student members. Special thanks to the UH Energy Coalition and UT’s FracPAC.

Congratulations to the Alliance on this significant achievement, and thanks to all the staff, company members and university partners who have helped make this program successful.
