THANK YOU for Helping Us Celebrate Our Outstanding Supporters at the O&GA Vendor Appreciation Event – an Old Hollywood Affair!

This past Friday was a BLAST!  Everyone came out Old Hollywood style to help Oil & Gas Admins International celebrate outstanding vendors!  We truly thank everyone that attended and appreciate you for sharing your Memorial Day weekend with us!  Congratulations to all the award recipients!  Check out the award recipient and event photos below! ⇓

Attendees were WOWED by the beautiful decor!  Tables were adorned with roses and crystal with beautiful gold table cloths and chair covers.  Large old Hollywood photos covered the rooms, setting the perfect scene.  A walk down the red carpet led to hand-carved Oscar inspired statues and even a hand-carved Lion’s head – all courtesy of Imagine That!

Along with the mingling and enjoyment, My Event is the Bomb provided an interactive photo booth that gave attendees an opportunity to let their hair down and have a lot of fun.  To top it off, P’s & Q’s Beverage Services served delicious champagne, wine and other beverages to go with the theme of the event.

SEE THE FUN PHOTO BOOTH ACTION HERE >> 

As the ceremony drew near, attendees enjoyed a DELICIOUS food spread of Ahi tuna, White Cheddar Grits topped with braised beef, and a fabulous salad bar provided by Bailey Connor Catering.  The desserts of strawberry shortcake and flaming S’more shooters nearly stole the show!

The entire exceptional event was hosted by HSR Event Center.  We sincerely appreciate their hospitality and their phenomenal facility.  The room they provided for our award reception was appointed with a giant screened wall that displayed the logo of each honoree and was the talk of the event!

Every aspect of the event was wonderfully captured by MIM Television.

Happy Administrative Professionals Day from Oil & Gas Admins International

Click this image to register to receive the $275.00 conference promo rate.

Today we celebrate the office heroes.  The backbone of oil and gas companies.  The ones that work tirelessly and sometimes thanklessly behind the scenes.  The Administrative Professional.

Oil & Gas Admins International was formed to celebrate those heroes.  In 2013 after researching and finding that there were no trade organizations or associations in the oil and gas industry that focused specifically on the career and personal development of administrative and support professionals (and after the initial shock), Oil & Gas Admins International was established to provide those opportunities.

The oil and gas industry had long recognized the importance of developing their employees and providing places to network, share best practices and lessons learned and to create industry standards through organizations like SPE (established in 1957) for Petroleum Engineers, AAPG (established in 1917) and SEG (established in 1930) for Geologists and Geophysicists, and IADC (established in 1962) for Drilling and Completion Engineers, but had missed an opportunity to create those same avenues for support professionals, thus O&GA was formed!

O&GA works to expose oil and gas administrative and support professionals to industry information and technologies to develop the necessary skills required for career advancement and to most effectively support the global and diverse oil and gas industry. The O&GA Professional Certification ensures oil and gas administrative professionals produce outstanding results for industry corporations and professionals.

The annual Oil & Gas Admins International Conference and Vendor Exhibition offers information, connections, inspiration and motivation to help oil and gas professionals succeed and excel in a challenging and demanding industry. It is a one-day conference scheduled to be held Thursday, June 15, 2017 from 7:30 AM until 5:30 PM with a vendor exhibition during lunch from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM.

The world operates in no small part thanks to the oil and gas industry.  No oil and gas company works well without a good foundation and a strong and solid support system. Today, we recognize that support system.  The unsung heroes.  The Oil & Gas Administrative and Support Professionals.
