Restated bylaws are ready for your vote!
Attention all AEG Members: In the next two weeks, you will be receiving a ballot asking for your vote on the AEG Restated Bylaws.

Along with this ballot, you will receive a summary outlining where we are in the process and what steps are needed in order to fully implement the new organization. The summary will provide links to the existing bylaws and the restated bylaws on the AEG website to enable you to compare the two documents. The Governance Restructure Committee urges each AEG member to carefully read both the old and restated bylaws, along with the explanation accompanying the ballot.

Instructions on how to submit your ballot will be included with the ballot and explanation. Ballots must be received at AEG Headquarters by Dec. 4.

A new sheriff in the Middle East
Billionaire, business magnate and financier T. Boone Pickens writes: "There's a story about a geologist who fell off a 10-story building. Geologists are optimists, so as he passed the fifth floor, he said, 'I'm not dead yet.' Earlier this year, I predicted crude oil prices would rebound to $70 by the end of the year. Right now, that's not looking good. But, being the geologist I am, I'm not dead yet. But I do concede it's not looking good. I thought worldwide demand would go up — and it has. The latest from the International Energy Agency shows demand is already up about 1.7 million barrels a day."
