Lafayette based lease acquisition and land management software company iLandMan continues its commitment to education by presenting to Colorado Mesa University and University of Louisiana landman program students again this year.
Richard Hines, iLandMan Vice President, co-founder, and Certified Professional Landman (CPL), gave special class presentations to landman students late last year in Grand Junction and earlier this year in Lafayette.
Organized by Steve Soychak and Bryan Hotard in Grand Junction, and Oliver LeBlanc in Lafayette, 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.
