Lafayette based lease acquisition and land management software company iLandMan presented to University of Louisiana Professional Land and Resource Management program students again this year.
Richard Hines, iLandMan Vice President, co-founder, and Certified Professional Landman (CPL), gave two special class presentations for students in UL's landman program this March.
Working closely with course administrator Oliver LeBlanc, Mr. Hines shared with the students his experiences as a landman, how the industry began and has evolved, where it is today, and technology changes he sees for the future of the industry. Students were also given the opportunity to view and train on iLandMan's tract-based online land system by entering tract and lease data as well as mapping tracts.
"I always enjoy presenting to these students and seeing the looks on their faces when I share stories from my days as a landman" said Hines. "It's also exciting to train a new batch of young landmen/women using our technology knowing that they will bring these skills out into the field."
Along with his role at iLandMan, Hines has over 30 years' experience in the land industry, served as Third Vice President of the American Association of Professional Landman (AAPL), was Chairman of the Certification Committee, and has served on the Website/IT Committee. He was the recipient of the 2008 AAPL Best Director's Communication Award.
