A Message from the President of EMLF
Erin E. Magee, 2017-2018
After more than 33 years, Sharon J. Daniels, Executive Director of the Energy & Mineral Law Foundation, has announced her upcoming retirement, effective June 30, 2018. We are grateful to Sharon for her years of service and dedication to the organization.
Sharon successfully navigated the Foundation through the cyclical nature of energy markets and continues year-after-year to develop top-notch continuing legal education for lawyers practicing in the energy industry in the Eastern United States. Under her guidance, the Foundation has awarded over $600,000 in scholarships to law students interested in practicing energy law.
Sharon obtained her undergraduate degree from Fort Hays State University in Kansas and her law degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Law.
In recognition of her accomplishments, the 7th edition of Cases and Materials on Oil and Gas Law, part of the American Case Book series, will be dedicated to Sharon. The dedication notes that her “longstanding leadership furthered the study of the laws and regulations related to natural resource development and energy use.”
Sharon noted, “It’s been an honor to work with so many exceptional people over the years, who have taught me much about evolving energy issues that challenge all of us to bring our best ideas to the table. I’m glad to have been a part of it all.”
On behalf of the entire Executive Committee and Board of Trustees, we will greatly miss Sharon and wish her all the best in her retirement. Please plan to join us to honor Sharon and celebrate her career at the EMLF’s 39th Annual Institute, which will be held on June 17-19, at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Downtown Nashville.
The Foundation will begin the process of looking for a new executive director. More information about this effort will be announced in the near future and will be available at the website, www.emlf.org.
