Operations Conference Agenda

As APGA prepares the agenda for the 2024 Operations Conference, please view the past year's agenda to see the type of sessions this event offers attendees. The 2023 APGA Operations Conference had speakers and panels of experts on topics such as pipeline safety regulations, PHMSA's Natural Gas Distribution Infrastructure Safety and Modernization Grant Program, methane emission mitigation strategies, case studies from community-owned utilities, and will also include an exhibitor hall of the latest in products and services for natural gas distribution operations.

The APGA Operations Conference provides professional development hours (PDH) for the entire conference.  PDHs are required by many states to maintain professional engineering licensure.
