Richard Hines, iLandMan Vice President, co-founder, and Certified Professional Landman (CPL), gave his first special class presentation to University of Tulsa Energy Management students earlier this month in Tulsa, OK. The iLandMan University Program allows students to take free training with access to iLandMan for their studies.
With the help of Energy Management Director Tim Coburn, Asst. Director Tom Seng, and Instructor Shelia Wilson, Mr. Hines shared with the students his experiences as a landman, how the industry began and has evolved, where it is today, and technology changes he sees for the future of the industry. Students were also given the opportunity to view and train on iLandMan’s tract-based online land system by entering tract and lease data as well as mapping tracts.
“I always enjoy presenting to these students and seeing the looks on their faces when I share stories from my days as a landman” said Hines. “It’s also exciting to train a new batch of young landmen/women using our technology knowing that they will bring these skills out into the field.”
Along with his role at iLandMan, Hines has over 30 years’ experience in the land industry, served as Third Vice President of the American Association of Professional Landman (AAPL), was Chairman of the Certification Committee, served on the Website/IT Committee, and is the current Chairman of the Technology Committee. He was the recipient of the 2008 AAPL Best Director’s Communication Award.
