In April, WPMA worked with the Hawaii Energy Marketers Association for a very successful golf tournament at the Ko Olino Golf Club inbeautiful Oahu, Hawaii. Our next focus was the Big Dogs event in WPMA ChiefLas Vegas, Nevada, hosted by the Nevada Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association. Their well-attended evening of bowlingExecutive Officer offered some great networking opportunities and lots of fun, followed (CEO)by a great day of golf at Bears Best. At the end of May, we attended theGene InglesbyEnergy Marketers of Americas national board meeting in Washington, DC, where we visited with our federal representatives to educate themon our petroleum concerns. June was an exceptionally busy month, as we had three events to attend. We first traveled to Fairmont, Montana for the Montana PetroleumMarketers and Convenience Store Associations convention, June 7 - 8 at the beautiful Fairmont Springs resort. From there we were back in Salt Lake City, Utah for the WPMA Spring Budget and Board Meeting.
