Aera’s San Ardo field recently welcomed 21 members of the 2019 Leadership Monterey County.
Class members, including Aera public affairs coordinator Kathy Miller, met July 26 for a two-hour discussion about oil production and toured Aera’s facilities, located 30 miles north of Paso Robles.
The visit was part of the group’s daylong exploration of southern Monterey County.
The year-long course helps emerging local leaders gain greater knowledge of Monterey County through a combination of academic training, community exposure, small group interactions and team projects.
July’s visit marked the second year the oil industry has been included as part of the leadership curriculum.
