Membership in the Association is open to individuals and entities (including trusts, associations, partnerships, sole proprietorships, and corporations) who own legal, beneficial, or other title to, or who actively manage, fee, surface, mineral, or royalty interests in Texas lands. Membership is not open to individuals and entities who earn the majority of their income via a working interest in oil and gas production.
We encourage you to join once as a group/ranch/organization and once individually to increase the size of the voting membership.
By joining you will help us to achieve accurate royalty payments, preserve the water table under your land from oil field pollution, and limit oil field and pipeline activity which reduces the value of your land without fair compensation or remediation. You also can participate in direct contact with legislators and Railroad Commissioners on our issues, attend meetings around the state, and receive educational material and information from events across Texas that affect you.
TLMA members will receive a quarterly newsletter with the latest news and information.
Upon request, the TLMA Oil and Gas Lease Form is available to any member in good standing in at least their second year of membership in TLMA or upon acceptance as a member of TLMA at the $250 level or greater in the first year of membership.
