How To Get Started

How to Get Started

Landnews is made available by the American Association of Professional Landmen as a service to Land professionals and those associated with Land work relating to the mineral and/or energy industries. Landnews is a forum to share ideas and to support professional connections, such as through job postings, job resumes, career events/milestones and obituaries. Please keep in mind that postings should be professional in nature and should not be defamatory, malicious or threatening. Landnews is not intended as forum for commercial transactions such as the buying or selling of mineral and other oil and gas interests.  Use discussion postings to ask a question and have a conversation with industry peers. Comment on other members posts and keep the discussion going.  All postings represent the view of the author(s). Postings in Landnews or in AAPL online communities neither imply AAPL approval of the opinions expressed nor accuracy of the facts stated. AAPL is not responsible for the opinions and accuracy of the information posted.

Follow our step-by-step instructions below to get up and running on AAPL Connect and collaborating with your peers.
