Carla Kruschel President
Thank You for Supporting CAPLA's Vision
The history of CAPLA has set the stage for today, tomorrow, and the future, by putting in place an association that is focused on the land discipline that continues to grow and evolve as quickly as the oil and gas industry itself. It is the many, many volunteers over the years that we have to thank for a strong foundation and for carrying out the vision of CAPLA.
At CAPLA’s 23rd Annual General Meeting on May 11, we had the opportunity to recognize two long-time volunteers who will be leaving the Board of Directors. Our deep appreciation goes out to Cathy Lotwin and Yvette Miller for their years of service and valuable contributions while members of the Board, during which time they each completed terms of Vice President, President, and Past President. Yvette and Cathy, thank you again for your hard work and dedication to the Board. We will definitely miss you.
There were two new Board members ratified at the AGM. A special welcome to Deb Watson and Tim Laws. The Board looks forward to their innovative ideas and readiness to contribute to what we can accomplish collectively in the year ahead. We are pleased to introduce the current members of the Board of Directors:
CARLA KRUSCHEL – PRESIDENT
Initially enticed by the legal world, Carla began working at a law firm after graduating from SAIT. Fascinated by the similarities between legal and land, she accepted a position with Canadian Hunter Exploration Ltd., where she spent the next 20 years advancing her career as Canadian Hunter became Burlington Resources and eventually ConocoPhillips. During that time, Carla held various land positions while she successfully
completed SAIT’s Petroleum Land Administration Certificate and the Advanced Petroleum Land Administration Certificate at Mount Royal University. She then moved to ARC Resources Ltd. as Supervisor, Contracts and Land Administration. A CAPLA member since its inception, Carla credits the association for supporting her career by providing resources, networking opportunities, education and professional development. She has served as a mentor in the Mentorship Program and on the B.C. Tenure Review Committee, Conference Education Committees and the Leadership Forum. As a member of the Board of Directors, Carla is committed to supporting CAPLA’s quest to elevate the profile of the land discipline.
TRACEY STOCK – PAST PRESIDENT
Tracey has more than 30 years of experience in the energy sector and has been a CAPLA member since 1997. He is a lawyer, landman, professional engineer and chartered manager actively consulting in oil and gas.
