He will speak on the Cruz/Bridenstine energy bill promoting liberation of energy producers to maximize energy production, job creation and prosperity for America. The conference, which includes a buffet breakfast, will also feature presentations by guest speakers Aaron J. Burke of Hartline Dacus Barger Dreyer LLP and Charles Nevle, Manager, Energy Analysis with Bentek Energy, offering insights into current energy legislation and economic forecasts.

The one-day Expo Trade Show will start at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, August 26, with a Professional Development Workshop led by professional leadership and performance execution coach Dr. Jeff Magee.
