WE ARE SOLD OUT
WE MAY BE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE A CERTAIN NUMBER OF WALK-INS.
There is no better weapon than knowledge. Come join us as we host some of the industry’s heavy weights working directly with the State Government to understand, fix or fight this newest bill SB 181 targeting the oil and gas industry in Colorado. Our distinguished panel will consist of:
Mr. Dan Haley serves as President & Chief Executive Officer of the Colorado Oil & Gas Association. As President, Mr. Haley is responsible for leading the industry in Colorado legislative, regulatory, and public relations matters. Previously, he was Vice President of Communications, Development and Strategy at EIS Solutions, a public affairs firm where he served as a consultant for numerous corporate and political clients, including oil and gas interests. Prior to that, Mr. Haley spent more than 20 years in the communications field, including 13 years at The Denver Post, where he was the Editorial Page Editor.
Jim Martin joined Beatty & Wozniak, P.C. as senior counsel in June of 2013. Jim has a wealth of knowledge and experience in environmental and natural resources law, the legislative and administrative process and the political arena. Before joining Beatty & Wozniak, Jim was the Regional Administrator for EPA’s Region VIII. This position entrusted Jim with the ultimate responsibility for all federal environmental laws in six western states and on 26 Indian reservations. Previously, Jim was the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources under Governor Ritter, a cabinet level position in which he supervised over 2,000 state employees, and has also been the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment in which he managed an annual budget of over $470 million.
Mark Mathews’ practice involves nearly all major disputes facing the energy industry in Colorado. He has successfully represented oil and gas clients in litigation and regulatory rulemakings and disputes concerning preemption and royalty issues; hazardous waste; enforcement of oil and gas regulations; zoning and development disputes and land use permitting issues. Mark is outside counsel for COGA and for API. Mark also represents many oil & gas companies. Mark was the lead attorney representing COGA in litigation that culminated in the Colorado Supreme Court’s ruling striking down Longmont’s ban and Fort Collins’ five-year moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.
Chantell Taylor’s practice is concentrated in regulatory and government affairs with emphasis in public policy, election law, ethics and government regulations at local, state and federal levels.
