For members, the Members, Calendar, and Newsletter The Mississippi Association of Landmen was organized in 1944 and is America's oldest active landmen's association. It has a membership of approximately 200 members, associates and honorary members.
The Association was organized for the purpose of improving the profession of petroleum landmen. Among its activities are monthly meetings with programs of interest to the industry, a continuing education series of industry seminars, and annual publication of a personnel directory. Also, in 1994, the Association raised funds to move a ninety-two foot derrick, pumping unit and engine from Tinsley Field in Yazoo County to the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Museum in Jackson where the exhibit is now displayed in commemoration of the Association's 50th anniversary and the importance of the oil industry to the State of Mississippi.
