Benefits of MAPL Membership
The Michigan Association of Professional Landmen, or MAPL, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to continuing education. Current MAPL members include individuals responsible for the acquisition, administration and disposition of mineral and/or surface rights for petroleum exploration and production companies, as well as related service and financial companies in the energy industry. The MAPL offers a place where oil and gas land professionals like us can meet and share our thoughts and ideas. Through regular seminars the MAPL provides sufficient credits for Certified Professional Landmen to maintain their status.
The MAPL was founded in 1965 and throughout the years continues to operate at a high level of expertise and enthusiasm. Membership benefits include discounted rates to educational seminars, dinners, golf outings, and annual listings in the MAPL membership directory. Attendance of MAPL meetings offers a chance to network with other Landmen and keep up with current industry events and employment opportunities.
