This committee educates the American public about our domestic oil and natural gas industry and the IOGCC’s role in its promotion and preservation. While issues publicly arise everyday concerning our nation’s oil and gas, Public Outreach strives to communicate the IOGCC’s role as the information and research authority on domestic petroleum resources.

This committee has started a plan for everyone including state and federal officials, associations, industry representatives, NGOs, academia and other interested parties to join in on the fun of launching Energy Awareness Campaign 2017. 

The first week of October we will celebrate with different daily themes such as History, Regulation, Careers/ Education, Lifestyle/ Health and Environmental Stewardship. 

Right now we are preparing tools and resources everyone can use from social media campaigns to contests, events to media coverage. If you have events, contests or any of the above to help with this effort, please contact Carol Booth.
