The IEL’s Young Energy Professionals are pleased announce the 4th Rockies General Counsel Forum will be held Tuesday, October 16th, in Denver, Colorado.
This year’s forum will still provide attendees the opportunity to seek career advice from industry counsel, but the program will a feature a topical discussion among the in-house panelists of current regulatory challenges for companies operating in Rockies states. Topics for discussion include ballot initiatives, state primacy and local control, federal lands, race to permit, and evolving environmental health and safety regulations, among others. The program will start with a reception, which will be followed by the panel discussion, and will conclude with dinner during which the general counsel panelists will join the registrants in a roundtable setting. This setting provides younger attorneys with the opportunity to interact and have a more intimate discussion with the industry counsel.
