Anti-Trust Statement

 "We are meeting to help develop and promote optimal accounting, auditing, and record keeping practices necessary to support oil and gas operations which enhance competition. The meeting will be conducted in compliance with the COPAS Policies on Ethics and Antitrust. We will not agree on prices paid to suppliers or charged to customers, endorse or disparage vendors or goods or services, divide markets, or discuss with whom we will do business, nor other specific commercial terms, because these are matters for each company or individual to independently evaluate and determine."

President's Letter

 

Dear Current and Prospective PASO Member,


Accounting in the petroleum industry compels us to stay abreast of the latest accounting interpretations, government requirements, and many other oil and gas accounting issues.  The Petroleum Accountants Society of Oklahoma-Tulsa (“PASO”) can help fulfill that need.  Consider joining an organization with over 250 of your peers representing over 50 companies and avail yourself of the latest developments in oil and gas accounting.


PASO is the longest standing charter member of the Council of Petroleum Accountants Societies (“COPAS”).  COPAS has 24 societies across the United States and Canada, and has over 3,500 members.  PASO provides members in the Tulsa area a forum for discussing and resolving difficult industry related accounting problems.  Working in conjunction with other COPAS societies, PASO members participate in the creation of accounting guideline documents, model form accounting procedures, model form interpretations and educational materials used throughout the petroleum accounting industry.


During this year, we will be launching a new PASO Website to enhance our communications to members and other industry partners.  Also, every member will have the opportunity to be involved with hosting the National COPAS Meeting to be held in September 2019 at the River Spirit Casino here in Tulsa.


Your participation will also allow you to increase your knowledge of industry policies and procedures, develop leadership skills, network with other industry professionals, and earn CPE credit.  Through your participation on various committees, your company will have a voice in projects relating to industry guidelines.As a member, you will have access to the national member directory that will enhance your ability to contact the appropriate people and resolve issues more efficiently.  PASO- also provides an opportunity to participate in the Accredited Petroleum Accountant (APA) program, which is quickly becoming a standard measure of petroleum accounting expertise.  The ACCOUNTS magazine, which is published quarterly, will keep you apprised of the most recent developments in the industry.


The $275 annual membership fee includes membership in PASO and COPAS, as well as the cost of the meals at our eight monthly meetings during the 2019-2020 term.  We hold our general membership meetings at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Tulsa and the attire is business casual.  Seven of our eight meetings are lunch meetings, and the other meeting is held in the evening.  General membership meeting times and committee meeting times will be included in our monthly newsletter.  


Please return your completed application by August 31, 2019.  Your timely response is greatly appreciated!  We will be hosting a new member orientation on Thursday September 26th at the Hotel Indigo downtown Tulsa.   Please plan to attend to meet the PASO-Tulsa board of directors and learn more about COPAS and PASO.  Our first full member meeting will not be until October 22nd, 2019 due to the COPAS National Conference being hosted by PASO September 16th through the 20th at River Spirit in Tulsa.  Should you have any questions regarding membership or other PASO issues, feel free to contact me at (918) 661-9535 or Vanessa.green@cop.com.  Additional information is also available at www.paso-tulsa.org and www.copas.org.


Sincerely,

Vanessa Green
