Our Mission

The Rocky Mountain Pipeliners Club (RMPC) was formed in April of 2015 as a 501(c)(6) to promote the advancement of the oil and natural gas industry in all aspects of pipeline engineering, construction and operation in the Rocky Mountain Region. Headquartered centrally in Denver, Colorado, the RMPC has a presence throughout the entire Rocky Mountain Region, including Colorado, Utah, North Dakota, New Mexico, Wyoming and Arizona. At the core of the RMPC are the community outreach programs and charity events we hold to fund scholarships for education in science, technology, and engineering.

We believe that the most important commodity in our industry is our workforce. We serve our members and constituents in many ways, but the club’s primary purpose is to provide scholarships to men and women looking to advance their careers through education. We differentiate ourselves in that we support licensed field workers as much or more than degreed professional employees.

Our fundraising efforts provide scholarships of up to $2,500 to diesel mechanics, pipefitters, electricians and other essential technical field support personnel so they may move from a welder to a weld inspector, for example, or from support staff to a certified diesel mechanic, through licensing and certification courses. These licenses and certifications can propel an employee to a brighter future for themselves and their families. We find that there aren’t many scholarships available for the ‘blue-collar’ employees that easily make up 50% or more of our industry’s workforce. We fill that gap and have found enormous support in our community.
