The American Association of Drilling Engineers (AADE) honored Charlie Kusiak (Newpark Drilling Fluids Sales Manager-Oklahoma City) with a Meritorious Service Award during its recent National Technical Conference & Exhibition in Oklahoma City. A leading forum on drilling industry technology, AADE is a non-profit, volunteer organization with 5,000 members. In recognizing Charlie with this prestigious award, AADE cited his charter membership in the Midcontinent chapter, and the substantial contributions he has made both on a local and national level to advancing the cause of the AADE and promoting its mission, vision, and values.
AADE noted that “Charlie has served the Midcontinent chapter as Chapter Representative to National for ten years, and has done an outstanding job acting as a reporting liason between National and chapter. He has traveled many miles, attended many, many meetings and worked countless hours providing exemplary leadership and service in promoting the values of the AADE to promote professionalism and respect within the drilling industry.”
