Our parent body, the SPWLA, has a new membership initiative at the moment. If you join the SPWLA as a new member and you are a member of the LPS (or another Chapter such as (AFES), you won’t be charged a member ship fee for 2013. This offer is open until the end of March and unfortunately it doesn’t apply to members renewing their membership.
All the best.
