December 2016 Newsletter
Message From the President
Dear Members & Friends of the LPS,
Our last One Day Seminar for 2016 is coming up soon! On 15th December we have pulled together an exemplary panel of professionals to share their experience on the topic “Rock Typing – What to use an When”. See the agenda below on p3, then head to our website to register: lps.org.uk/events/rock
Later the same evening we shall host the annual LPS ‘President’s Evening’ at the King’s Head in Mayfair. This event is now quite infamous for it’s relished & slightly raucous reputation! There will be a buffet with drinks included, and – despite the downturn- we have keep this event free for both members & guests.
On the 15th November we held the Annual General Meeting. We presented the LPS achievements through the year, the audited financial status of our Society, and the newly proposed SPWLA charter. Minutes will be circulated to all our membership. I would like to introduce the new committee for 2017 on the following page, and welcome new members: Dawn Houliston, Jenny Turner, Anne Denoyer, and Brian Moss. Many thanks are given to outgoing committee members Liz Davis & Pete Fitch who have served the LPS for many years, and have both made significant contributions to our Society. We shall miss them.
A most illuminating presentation on construction of The Shard was given by structural engineer Roma Agarwal on 15th Nov (preceding the AGM). Roma is a truly inspirational speaker who spent 6 years working on this project. For those who further interested, I direct you to her website; www.romatheengineer.com
The 2017 Membership form is now on LPS website, so please take a moment to fill it in for continued membership. It is free to join – so stay with us, friends.
I wish you all a very warm Christmas and a good holiday into the New Year !
Michael O’Keefe – LPS President
