Corporate Membership Program

Corporate Partner Recognition Program

AAPL’s Corporate Membership Recognition Program is a visible way for your company to support the greater industry and distinguish itself as a peer leader by connecting with AAPL to promote ethical excellence in the energy industry.

AAPL exists to promote the highest standards of performance for all land professionals, to advance their stature, and to encourage the sound and ethical stewardship of energy and mineral resources. It is the largest organization serving energy professionals performing or supervising landwork, professionals associated with landwork and students enrolled in a degree program at an accredited university.

Landwork is defined as the performance of or supervision of the determination of mineral ownership and the negotiations, management and pooling of mineral interests. Landwork is a vital part of the energy business, and AAPL provides the opportunities and programs necessary for land professionals to enhance their technical and professional competencies through certification and required adherence to our Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
