NARO Expands with Appalachia Chapter

The National Association of Royalty Owners accepts the charter for an Appalachia chapter to the organization. The new chapter will represent the interests of royalty owners in the states of New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee.
“It is always exciting for our organization when we are able to grow. With the increased membership, the stronger and more united our voice becomes. The individuals and families that make up the America’s royalty owners, for the most part, depend on their royalties to make ends meet. Protecting those interests and keeping them informed of policies and legal precedents for them is our core mission.” said Jerry Simmons, executive director.
NARO Appalachia organizers met in State College, Pa., on Nov. 1, to approve the by-laws, select chapter board members and determined the organizational structure. The rapidly escalating leasing and drilling activity in the Marcellus shale play brought about a need for the formation of this group.
Established in 1980, NARO has grown to include chapters representing royalty owners in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and now the Appalachian states.
NARO members live in virtually every state.
