2015 APGA Government Relations Conference and
Spring Board and Committee Meetings
April 26 - 29, 2015
Hotel Monaco, Alexandria, Va.
Invite your locally elected and appointed officials to join you in meeting with your congressional representatives!
APGA holds the annual Government relations Conference in Washington, D.C., as part of the spring Board and
Committee meetings. In addition to receiving updates on key natural gas issues, another critical component of this
event is that APGA members meet with their congressional delegations. As in years past, this is an opportunity to
greatly enhance our efforts when members of Congress hear directly from representatives of their communities.
There are a number of key legislative issues facing public gas systems, such as the export of domestically
produced liquefied natural gas and proposals to eliminate or reduce the availability of tax-exempt financing. This
conference has no registration fee.

The GeAC is aimed at showcasing and discussing the innovative natural gas equipment and appliances on
the marketplace. The goal is to inform members of these products as well as offer a unique opportunity to
educate energy decisions makers-such as engineers, architects, builders, school district personnel, hospital
operators, etc. The conference and exhibits will feature innovative applications to grow the direct-use of
natural gas. This event will offer gas utilities- and other end-users- the opportunity to learn directly from
(1) manufacturers about the newest technologies that are now available and ready for prime-time; (2) vendors
who have assembled direct-use natural gas technologies and are able to deliver either or both of these products
and services; and, (3) end-users themselves who have adopted/incorporated new technologies, and are willing to
share their experiences and best practice applications of these new generation equipment and appliances.
