Amber Oyler, Environmental Services Group Manager for Larson’s Energy Division, has been elected as the New Membership Chair of the Women’s Energy Network (WEN), Greater Pittsburgh Chapter.
The New Member Committee Chair acts as the face of the organization, being the first person “to meet new members and welcome them in,” Oyler said. It’s an important role that she’s eager to take on; remembering her own experience with joining the group, she believes it’s crucial to have a welcoming atmosphere for women joining the group for the first time.
Oyler has been a member of WEN since May 2018 and has enjoyed all that the organization offers its members, especially “getting together with women in our industry, meeting new people and taking advantage of great training opportunities.” Earlier this year, when a communication was sent out to members informing them of vacancies on various committees and asking for nominations to fill them, Oyler believed it was time to take her involvement to the next level.
“I picked a few that I thought I could jump right into,” she said. “LDG encourages its employees to participate on boards and committees of the many organizations we belong to – we can be involved at a higher level and impact decision-making.”
“We are very excited to have Amber chair the New Membership Committee for WEN,” said Chris Bostaph, Vice President of LDG’s Energy Division. “LDG has been a proud sponsor of WEN for several years and we are pleased when our employees step up to assist with the management of our industry organizations. Amber’s diverse background, having worked for both consulting firms and directly for the industry, will be a valuable asset to the WEN organization.”
The organization’s vision “is to be the premier organization that educates, attracts, retains, and develops women working across the value chain. WEN’s mission is to provide networking opportunities and foster career and leadership development of those who work in the energy industries.”
