Horizon Breakfast
Event Title Horizon Breakfast
Date/Time June 20 7:30-8:50 a.m.
More Info

This special event was created to celebrate and honor a trailblazing female land leader in the industry who has distinguished herself in her career, in the profession and has supported AAPL and its mission. 

About the Award: The Blankenship Family Horizon Award is the product of a fund set up decades ago by former AAPL President Wayne Blankenship (1975) to honor his wife, Mary Blankenship, upon her passing. Originally, this fund supported the AAPL women’s auxiliaries for many years until they ceased to exist in the early '90s. To continue the Blankenship legacy of generosity, the AAPL Educational Foundation established the Blankenship Family Horizon Award in 2019 to honor female industry leaders and to be presented each year at AAPL’s Annual Meeting.

Landman Bash
Event Title Landman Bash
Date/Time June 20 7-9 p.m.
More Info

There's no better way to cap off a week of education and business than at the Landman Bash! Join us for a fun-filled Friday evening with dinner at the State Room overlooking Boston while AAPL honors its members for achievements over the last year and acclaimed songwriters from Nashville-based The Bluebird Cafe will serve as entertainment!
