    Certainly looking at the pictures things are different now. However, listen to the comments that were attached.

    Drawn by Rumors of Big Pay, sturdy men flocked from all parts of the country to join the Los Angeles Basin drilling boom. One veteran driller described his crew as composed of one grocery clerk, one dry goods clerk, one cop and one college studentWorkforce created by Houston Chapter in 2004

    Went national in 2005

    Committee includes broad spectrum of workforce stakeholders with approximately 50 individuals so far: 12 from E&P, 13 from drilling or service companies, 7 from other associations, 6 consultants, 3 academia and 1 student.

    Initial emphasis is on both blue and white collar jobsInitial age focus will be middle school and high schoolTo Undistinguish ourselvesTechnical shortage spans many in fact most industries, particularly in North America and Europe this also impacts the way we deal with the feds

    Other businesses are also cyclical as we are Washington state study from 1990-2002 listed mining as only the 9th most cyclical of all industries (finance and insurance the most cyclical)looking at more principle manufacturing (metals, apparel, transportation, beverages, etc. we were also 9th However, Dont let our structural changes of the past over hype the cyclical nature of the oil and gas business

    To Distinguish ourselvesCurrently, oil/natural gas/coal comprise a total of 86% (85.95) of our total energy demand. By 2030, their respective contribution will slightly increase (86.44%) according to the EIAs Annual Energy Outlook. Our total consumption is expected to grow by over 34% (1.3% annualized) during this timeframe. Technically we have more computing power than anyone except the us govt.!Rigs driven by joysticksMidyear Meeting & Follow-up ActivitiesResource Kit for high school students will be available in hard copy and on IPAAs websiteFederal/Legislation working with Administration and Departments (Labor/Interior/Energy/) in addition to Senate Energy and House Natural Resource Committees on issues pertaining to workforce.

    The West Virginia Oil and Gas Association has put together interactive modules (Adventures in Energy) and they have created a lesson plan for 8th grade social studies both can be found on their website. Last year, in cooperation with the Community and Technical College System of West Virginia, West Virginia IOGA offered a Well Tender Certification program at five sites in the state which had 49 graduates and a 96 percent job placement rate. This year they are offering a Well Riggers Course.

    The Offshore Energy Center is focusing on K-12 students. Their program includes the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum in Galveston that showcases the offshore oil and gas industry; a monthly Guest Speaker program; a new Career Exhibit; a new curriculum venture called Earths Energy; and Project E3 (Expanding Energy Education) a cross-curricular educators resource guide for grades k-12 emphasizing energy themes.

    The Wyoming Contractors Association has started the Oil and Gas Training Program in Casper. 44 companies have given financial support to this program which provides the basics in oilfield operations with an emphasis on safety. Through support from the IACC, participants are able to attain their RigPass certification. The Department of Labor and Department of Education have assembled a website that details various career opportunities in the energy field. The site includes career links and videos in addition to information on education and training. We have copies available of their In-Demand Magazine which is oriented toward todays students, providing them as well as guidance counselors, parents and teachers with interesting and relevant information about career opportunities, education and the skills needed for various jobs. It offers resources to explore careers and tips about how to help students build successful futures.
