Dear PESA Members,
Our most sincere thanks and appreciation for your support and engagement in 2016, we trust that you have seen the value of your investment in PESA. While significant industry challenges have continued this year, true achievements have also been realized, benefiting each of your individual companies, our sector and industry thanks to your participation.
PESA’s vision of providing a united voice for the oilfield service and supply sector, promoting and reinforcing our role as innovators and supporting our membership through networking opportunities, elevation of key issues and targeted workforce development is reflected in our mantra: Train. Elevate. Network. We have grown stronger and more focused, and will continue that commitment in 2017.
Significant changes in committee structure have enhanced our ability to achieve our mission and provide more benefits than ever. The newly-formed International Outposts Subcommittee is providing unique opportunities beyond networking to serve the service and supply sector in targeted international locations, promoting the PESA brand internationally. Utilizing a regional district growth model to scale for success in targeted international locations, the committee has implemented a phased approach with strategic intent for sustainability of programs starting with the Mexico market. The Mexico Task Force is providing resources to PESA members of all sizes relative to the changes in that market. Additionally, the Engagement Committee is focused on the overarching goal of promoting diversity within the oilfield service and supply sector, specifically promoting leadership of diverse groups within PESA.
As PESA expands our outreach in the industry and grows as a resource to our sector, we partnered with multiple industry organizations to elevate oilfield service, supply and manufacturing priorities. We now reach more individuals than ever, strengthening the sector and our member companies.
PESA will continue to articulate the value of the service and supply sector, promote achievements in innovation and support members in trainings, advocacy and networking. As of this month, we have realized the highest membership renewal rate in decades; reflecting our momentum. Preparations for a strong 2017 Annual Meeting are well underway, and we look forward to seeing you April 19-21 at the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain in Marana, Arizona. We are truly appreciative of your time and resources in support of PESA.
From our families to yours, warmest wishes for a happy holiday season.
