Save the Date - BLM Rawlins to Host 2014 Industry Government Conference


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rawlins Field Office (RFO) will host the 2014 Industry Government Conference on Wednesday, Mar. 12, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., at the Jeffrey Memorial Community Center, 315 W. Pine St., Rawlins, Wyo.  

The BLM RFO was designated as a pilot office under the Energy Policy Act of 2005. As part of that designation, the office hosts an annual Industry Government Conference. The focus of this year’s event is sharing of ideas, information, and learning opportunity for improving operations. The BLM is looking for industry/operator/lease holders to present on best management practices, new technologies, reclamation success, remote sensing, or water quality. Presentations are requested to be approximately 15-20 minutes, including Q&A time.  

“The Industry Government Conference is a great opportunity to be able to put a face with a name of people you work with on Federal regulations on a daily basis,” says Rawlins Assistant Field Manager Nancy Baker. “It also is a wonderful time networking with fellow industry personnel you don’t usually get to visit with who are working through similar challenges.”  

In conjunction with the Industry Conference, the Monitoring without Borders (wildlife monitoring) meeting will be held Tuesday, Mar. 11, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. at the RFO, 1300 N. Third St., Rawlins, Wyo. Also, the Transportation Planning meeting will be held Thursday, Mar. 13 from 8 a.m.-noon, followed by an open forum from 1-4 p.m. at the RFO.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
