The Laredo Border Chapter API is a service-oriented organization that was chartered in 1982 by local oil field service companies and a local independent operator.
The Laredo Border Chapter API’s goal is to raise funds for scholarships and to promote education, well-being, and success in today’s youth.
API chapters promote fellowship and professional development of their members through the exchange of operational experience, operations oriented meeting programs, and a variety of educational, industry service and community service projects.
These efforts promote a professional and civic minded industry image in chapter communities. The chapters are non-commercial, non-discriminatory, and do not endorse or financially support political parties or candidates. To avoid inadvertent conflicts, the chapters do not independently develop or promote positions on public issues, but often provide forums for discussion of such issues.
