APGA’s primary focus is on the health and safety of our members and the communities they serve especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason, the 2020 APGA Annual Conference, which was scheduled for July 19-22 at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel, will become a virtual event.


The APGA Annual Conference is traditionally the largest gathering of publicly-owned and community-owned natural gas professionals across the nation. There are plenty of reasons why our members attend the APGA Annual Conference year after year. From the educational sessions with key industry figures generating new ideas to networking opportunities with hundreds of colleagues from across the nation, the APGA Annual Conference is the event of the year for city- and community-owned natural gas utility professionals and industry experts.
