Fueling the Economy, Enhancing Security and Improving the Environment

The Texas Oil and Gas Association

The Texas Oil and Gas Association (TXOGA) has a simple message: oil and natural gas are good for Texas and the United States in general. Oil and natural gas drive the Texas economy, generating billions of dollars in annual royalties and taxes while providing high-paying jobs to nearly 350,000 people. Surging oil and natural gas production has enhanced domestic security by making the U.S. less dependent on foreign fuel sources, while industry-funded innovations have had a positive environmental impact.

Energy storage in America is advancing at a rapid rate now that new, progressive regulations are in place. It’s an exciting time to be in the industry, even more so for the Energy Storage Association (ESA), the trade organization that provides a voice for its members. ESA’s outreach to policymakers and regulators on Capitol Hill and at the state and regional levels is making change toward a greener, more sustainable future.

Sales and selection in the frozen and dairy aisles of grocery stores continue to grow for reasons ranging from consumers seeing the benefits of portion control to generating less waste and having healthier meal and snack options. Under the leadership of President and Chief Executive Officer Skip Shaw, the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association, Inc. (NFRA) serves as the voice of the industry.

Alive and Well and Thriving

The National Tooling and Machine Association

During a worldwide speaking tour well over a century ago, famed American author Mark Twain is said to have responded to rumors that he was gravely ill with one brilliant, succinct line: “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” And much like Twain’s untruthful demise, the so-called decline of manufacturing in America has been wildly overblown. The National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) is helping to separate truth from fiction and lead the way for strong American manufacturing today and into the future.
