LAGCOE Education & Innovation Summit

LAGCOE continues to work to bring value to the energy industry even during economically difficult times by hosting the LAGCOE Education and Innovation Summit. Part of LAGCOE’s mission is to foster the energy workforce pipeline. This is equally as important during tough times as it is during prosperous times. For a successful, sustainable industry, the pipeline of future, present and retiring workers requires a balance.

In 2016, the Education & Innovation Summit targeted all age groups, from eighth grade students through the senior executive level, by playing host to six informational, motivational and non-technical event sessions geared to a variety of interest levels within the energy industry.
