the upcoming Oilfield Housing Solutions Conference. The conference will be
held in San Antonio on May 9 &10 at The Westin La Cantera Hill Country Resort

While the oil boom has been of great benefit to U.S. and Canadian economies,
the rapid growth in "boom town" communities has put an enormous strain on
housing availability, both for oilfield workers and for the local communities.
Fast-rising rents have made it difficult for schoolteachers, hospitality
sector employees, and others to afford to live in the community. This
conference is designed to discuss many of these issues and to present some
potential solutions. However, the focus is not only on immediate short-term
solutions but also the long-term solutions with an eye toward building
stronger communities and integrating the oilfield workers and support staff
with the existing community.
Speakers at the conference include David Porter – Commissioner from the Texas
Railroad Commission; Omar Garcia—President of the South Texas Energy and
Economic Roundtable (STEER); Nelson Wolff—Bexar County Judge and two-term
Mayor of San Antonio; Tom Rolfstad—Williston Economic Executive Director; and
Dan Coen – Utica Shale Housing Group. Participating companies include industry
leaders such as BHP Billiton, STEER, IAP Worldwide Services, Shell,
OilfieldLodging.com, ARAMARK, Burke Construction Group, Winrock International
and Target Logistics.
