Sincerely, www.ipaa.org SUMMER 2015 In 2015, we continue to celebrate IPAA's 85 th anniversary. In 1929, a small group of determined independent producers gathered in Colorado Springs and created what is now an association of thousands of companies and individuals dedicated to the health of America's oil and natural gas industry. IPAA's mission endures today: The Independent Petroleum Association of America is dedicated to ensuring a strong, viable domestic oil and natural gas industry, recognizing that an adequate and secure supply of energy is essential to the national economy. Some of our advocacy issues have spanned the years. We continue to fight for a tax code that encourages domestic production. And some of our priorities have recently emerged, such as ending the ban on crude oil exports. As you'll see in this issue of IPAA Access, we continue to connect our members with key policymakers in Washington (Congressional Call-Up, page 36). Some of our advocacy issues have spanned the years. We continue to fight for a tax code that encourages domestic production. And some of our priorities have recently emerged, such as ending the ban on crude oil exports Meanwhile, new opponents of oil-and-gas development are attacking the industry by waging symbolic campaigns aimed at forcing colleges and universities to divest their endowments of fossil-fuel related stocks. And that's why IPAA has launched DivestmentFacts.com, a new website campaign that explains how divestment is misguided. IPAA's Jeff Eshelman explains the importance of this issue in the article, "Fossil Fuel Divestment Campaign Running into Resistance on College Campuses." New research commissioned by IPAA and produced by Compass Lexecon, a leading economic consulting firm, suggests the costs associated with adopting such policies are likely to be enormous, resulting in the displacement of billions annually from school endowments that could be otherwise used to http://www.DivestmentFacts.com http://www.naylornetwork.com/paa-nxt http://www.ipaa.org http://videos.ipaa.org/home
