Our presenter: D. Alex Mills, President & Chief of Staff, Texas Alliance of Energy Producers


Alex Mills became President of the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers in 2000, following the merger of the North Texas Oil & Gas Association (NTOGA) and the West Central Texas Oil & Gas Association (WeCTOGA). The Alliance is the largest state oil and gas associations in the nation with more than 2,800 members in 31 states.


Mills moved to Wichita Falls in 1994 as Executive Vice President of NTOGA, after living 8 years in Washington, D.C., where he served as Vice President of the Independent Petroleum Association of America, the national organization for the independent oil and gas industry. He also served as Executive Vice President of the West Central Texas Oil & Gas Association in Abilene from 1981 to 1986.


He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Texas after serving in the U.S. Army Security Agency.


He worked as Managing Editor of The American Oil & Gas Reporter, and for several newspapers, television and radio stations in Texas. He authors a weekly column concerning energy issues, which appears in newspapers across Texas. He is a frequent speaker on energy topics, including recent speaking engagements at Texas Tech University and participated in the Distinguished Lecture Series at the Dillard Business School at Midwestern State University. Mills served as President of the University of North Texas Alumni Association in 1997 and 1998. Texas Governor Ann Richards appointed him to the Interstate Oil & Gas Compact Commission in 1994 and Governor George W. Bush re-appointed him in 1995.


The Alliance won the Association of the Year Award in 2008 presented by Energy Advocates in Washington, D.C. and again in 2011. Also, the American Oil and Gas Historical Society presented the Alliance with the prestigious 2008 Oil Patch Preservation Award in Houston.


Based in Wichita Falls, the Alliance also has offices in Austin and Houston. http://texasalliance.org/
