The Importance of Membership Renewal

Each year after August 1, we will update our database of members from the State Bar's database. Those who were previously members of Oil, Gas & Energy Resources Law Section who have not paid dues for the new year (starting the previous June 1) will, through the database update, automatically be deleted from the members database.
