IOGA Fall Meeting a Success
The annual IOGA Fall Membership Meeting that was held October 14, 2016 at the Holiday Inn, Mt. Vernon, IL was a success. Attendance was down somewhat from previous years, however, considering what is happening in the industry at this time, we definitely had a great crowd. Approximately 80 people were in attendance for this year's event.
The Holiday Inn Ballroom had been completely remodeled and looked great. Everyone seemed to enjoy the venue, the speakers, and the dinner. A special thanks to Kendra Brockamp, Ernie Keirbach, Terry Blain, and Dan Reitz for participating in this year's event. Thanks also goes out to Harold Hamm, CEO of Continental Resources for his pre-recorded message to everyone.
Thanks also to our sponsors for helping to make the meeting possible. (BITCO Ins. Corp., Campbell Energy, CountryMark, Lincoln Crude Oil Marketing, Bi-Petro, Geo. N. Mitchell Drlg.

We hope everyone in attendance enjoyed their afternoon and evening with us. See you next year!
