Chapter Membership and Organization
Membership is open to anyone engaged in the petroleum or an allied industry, and annual membership dues are only $15.

Chapter membership does not require or constitute national API corporate or individual membership, and there are no national dues.

Each chapter is a separate and totally self-supporting legal entity, elects its own officers and establishes its own programs and dues consistent with its local constitution and bylaws, and applicable API policies and federal, state and local laws.

Fund-raisers and Fellowship
Our chapter emphasize scholarships and we host events during the year to help generate funding. These events also serve as social functions to involve families and friends. Check out our Events page to learn more about the Gumbo Cook-Off and annual golf tournament!
