Lynn Sheetz, petroleum department manager of Sully Cooperative Exchange in Sully, was recently elected to the Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores of Iowa (PMCI) Board of Directors, according to the Newton Daily News.com
PMCI is a state trade association representing 1,500 petroleum marketing and convenience stores across Iowa. The board of directors meets frequently to discuss current industry trends and issues affecting their members and to advocate legislatively on behalf of the industry. Sheets has been actively involved with PMCI for the past six years. He's also held board positions of secretary/treasurer and vice-chairman.
During his yearlong term, Sheets said he wants to ensure those in the petroleum industry are provided with the on-going training and education. He says keeping and increasing incentives to sell renewable resources is at the top of his to-do list. That also includes finding money for the industry to upgrade fuel plants.
"I would like to see our industry looked at under a positive light," said Sheets. "We dislike higher fuel prices more than consumers do."
A 33-year veteran of the petroleum industry, Sheets started driving refined fuel and propane trucks while attending West Texas State University.
