APGA Member Tour



APGA's Member Tour is back for 2020 as APGA’s leaders feel it is important to get to know our members! We understand that it can be challenging to attend our events, so we are coming to you instead. This year, APGA President & CEO Dave Schryver, Vice President of Operations & Safety Erin Kurilla, and APGA Vice President of Government Relations Stuart Saulters will be visiting even more member utilities across the United States and stay tuned as more are being scheduled throughout the year.

This series of events allows APGA staff the opportunity to come to our members' communities to meet with the folks who work for our member utilities and listen to the concerns and daily challenges of our member gas utilities to better focus our efforts. At each stop along the way, APGA staff will enjoy lunch with attendees to chat about what we are doing for public gas systems and talk about pipeline safety and energy issues at the federal level and how that affects the municipal natural gas industry.  Please come out to meet the team!

March 30-April 3 APGA Member Tour Dates Are Postponed

Over recent weeks, APGA has been closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19, also referred to as the coronavirus. We recognize the impact the situation is having on our members as publicly-owned gas utilities’ top commitment now and always is the safety and well-being of their communities.

Out of an abundance of caution and to respect the travel restrictions many member systems have implemented; we have made the decision to postpone the March 30-April 3 APGA Member Tour stops in Henderson, Ky., Clarksville, Tenn., Dyersburg, Tenn., Olive Branch, Miss., and Florence, Ala., with the intent to reschedule. We are sorry for any inconvenience and look forward to being able to meet with you soon.
