MAPL's mission is to promote and advance the highest standards of professionalism for all landmen and to actively engage in sound stewardship of mineral and energy resources.
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.
MAPL was founded in 1965 and throughout the years continues to operate at a high level of expertise and enthusiasm. Attendance at MAPL meetings offers a chance to meet other land professionals, network, share thoughts and ideas with other Landmen and keep up with current industry events and employment opportunities. MAPL membership benefits include discounted rates to educational seminars, dinners, golf outings, and an annual listing in the MAPL Membership Directory and the Michigan Petroleum Directory.
Through regular seminars the MAPL provides sufficient re-certification credits for Certified Professional Landmen, Registered Professional Landmen and Registered Landmen to maintain their status.
