Letter from the President:


Dear Members,


The Holiday season has arrived, and judging by our December Social, the members of TAPL are already in the Christmas spirit. Once again TAPL paired up with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve to support their Toys for Tots program, and this year’s generosity was exceptional and heart-warming. A great turnout of over 200 people led to an unprecedented amount of money given to the Marines and enough toys to eclipse a banquet table. Events like this illustrate what a great organization we have, and I am certainly proud to be part of such a generous and caring group of professionals.  You can find more details of the event and pictures below in Mike Knapp’s article.


The beginning of the Holiday season also means the arrival of the College Football bowl season. Despite neither the State of Oklahoma nor the Big XII being represented in the inaugural College Football Playoff, this is still a momentous and exciting event. To get our membership ready for the big season finale, we’re making our January offsite social a PRE-GAME for the National Championship. So be on the look-out for registration for our pre-game social at Cedar Ridge Country Club on January 12th.


We also have plenty of other events this spring to look forward to, ranging from our local Community Food Bank volunteer day in March and the Spring Educational Seminar in April, to the Spring Golf Scramble on May 11th. When combined with our monthly dinner meetings and educational luncheons, we have a full calendar ahead of us for 2015.  Let’s just hope oil prices recover so that we’ll be just as busy in the office as we are in TAPL.


I wish you and your family a safe and happy holidays, and we’ll see you in 2015.




Collin J. Sniff, CPL
