Workforce Development

APGA represents America's publicly owned natural gas local distribution companies (LDCs), and the safety of their community and customers is both our and our members' top priority. The resources on this page are to help our members hire a skilled and inclusive workforce that will upgrade and maintain their energy infrastructure needs.
