Coffee with Leaders featuring the American Petroleum Institute - ON LINE REGISTRATION CLOSED

Date(s): May 26, 2021

Time: 8:30 AM  EST - 9:30 AM  EST

Join us for our first “Coffee with a Leader” event.  We are pleased to have TWO leaders with us for this inaugural event!  Amanda Eversole, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, and Eileen Adenan, Vice President of Human Resources, share their backgrounds, work history and, in particular, their experiences working together at API (American Petroleum Institute) which has helped to forge a solid work relationship, especially during COVID-19.  Eileen has come to work closely with Amanda with respect to hiring and other facets of HR.  

Sam McCarthy of Cordia Resources, who serves on the HR Alliance Membership Committee, will facilitate this event.  After some brief introductions, Sam will open this up to our speakers.  He will encourage Q&A along the way.  At the end, we will go into breakouts for networking and expanding on the conversation inspired by our leaders.
