Letter from the President:


I trust each of you had a relaxing and safe holiday season, and hopefully everyone got the needed recharge from the break to hit the ground running in 2015. It was great to see many of you at Cedar Ridge Country Club on the 12th for our January Social. Cedar Ridge certainly put together a great pre-game menu perfect for football along with countless TVs, which led to a great atmosphere for the college football national championship.  I’d like to thank Raegan Schaffler for putting together an entertaining and great event.


Before we move on to our upcoming events, I’d like to address some issues that have been raised regarding the TAPL website.  The transition from our prior website to our significantly more functional and aesthetically pleasing current website, despite with the same provider, has caused some hiccups that we are currently addressing. We’ve received reports that active members are being flagged as expired, despite being current on their annual dues. Another complication that we’ve noticed is a discrepancy in our monthly meeting registration list as compared with those who have actually registered.  Our website provider has been notified of these glitches, and we hope they can address these issues quickly. I’m truly sorry for any inconveniences and complications this may have caused. If you notice any irregularities with your TAPL account, please do not hesitate to contact us immediately.  Once again, I apologize for the inconvenience and would like to thank you for your patience.


As I have mentioned before, we have an exciting line-up of events this spring for our membership, and I hope to see many of you there. Please pencil the following TAPL events into your calendars:


  • January 22nd - TAPL Luncheon at the Summit, featuring Tom Seng
  • February 9th - February Dinner Meeting at the Summit, featuring Roger Soape (AAPL President)
  • February 26th - CPL Event at Mix Co. (3rd and Denver)
  • March 6th - TAPL Volunteer Day at the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma
  • April 22nd - TAPL Spring Seminar at the OU Schusterman Center
  • April 23rd - CPL Event at the Driller’s Ballpark
  • May 11th - TAPL Spring Golf Tournament at Indian Springs Country Club


Our board of directors has done a great job this year of putting together quite the exhausting list of events, so please be on the lookout for emails about their registration. I hope to see you there.
