KIOGA’s vision is simple – to promote the development of Kansas’ oil and natural gas resources for the betterment of society. We recognize that our members truly are the fabric of many communities throughout Kansas. KIOGA members not only employ and support over 100,000 Kansans and their families with good paying jobs boosting our state economy, but also pay significant taxes and often make significant charitable gifts that support communities and general overall well-being of our state.
Through rigorous engage-ment at the state and federal level, KIOGA works to create a more stable and predictable political and regulatory environment for our members. We are committed to being a positive, credible, and proactive voice for industry, promoting respectful dialogue and education to advance oil and gas interests at the state and federal level.
Membership in KIOGA Gives You:
Few independent businesses have the budget, time, and expertise to individually tackle issues at the federal, state, and local levels of government as well as regulatory issues. KIOGA is the government relations branch for each of our members. Our personal and frequent contacts with key legislators and decision-makers effectively influence public policy on behalf of KIOGA members.
As the oil and gas industry continues to face enormous challenges of providing adequate and reliable energy sup- plies, an informed public has never been more necessary. Join our efforts to fight the negative public image that has made voters and policymakers unsympathetic to major problems confronting independent oil and gas producers.
