A

s my tenure as APGA Board Chair draws to a close, our organization's work on behalf of the natural
gas industry continues at a rapid pace. The action of our Direct-Use Task Group (DUTG) is uniting
us as an organization, and more importantly, as an industry segment. The group is maintaining
its laser focus on communication, regulatory and legislative concerns for the natural gas industry, and we
are beginning to get some traction.
APGA was recognized in January by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as being on
the forefront of helping energy consumers with regard to recently enacted tax cuts. At the Commission's
monthly meeting in January, FERC Commissioner Robert Powelson referenced and supported APGA's
concerns on the timeliness of tax flowbacks to ratepayers. Other good news for ratepayers were
discussions in January at our APGA Gas Supply Conference of several long-term prepaid gas deals that
could bring major cost savings to our ratepayers now and in the future.
It was a busy spring as many APGA members participated in the End Use of Natural Gas Symposium
and Marketing and Sales Trends and Training Conference (MSTTC) in Panama City. Collaborative
discussions with our friends from Southern Gas Association, American Gas Association, Energy Solutions
Center and NGVAmerica are always so beneficial to our industry; so the opportunity to co-host the End
Use of Natural Gas Symposium with these organizations was monumental. There is such a clear need for
continued national dialog promoting the end use of natural gas, and meetings like this one are helping
us advance the conversation in a positive direction. Porter Novelli, the public relations firm working
with our DUTG on national communications messaging, also presented a compelling presentation that
helped bridge the gap from how we in the industry believe consumers think about natural gas to how
consumers truly perceive natural gas. At the conference, we had an opportunity to preview some of the
work they have done with our DUTG communications team to continue moving our national direct use
message forward.
The spring Government Relations Conference is quickly approaching and I hope you are making
plans to attend. In addition to our quarterly board and committee meetings, this meeting is
particularly beneficial because it gives APGA members an opportunity to meet with their senators and
representatives in Congress. The current Administration tends to be more positive toward natural gas,
and now is the time for us to ensure that our strong, positive natural gas message is heard in Washington.
In June, I'll be presenting a compelling paper on the importance of a national balanced energy
strategy alongside other APGA colleagues at the World Gas Conference in Washington, D.C. Natural gas
leaders from across the globe will have an opportunity to hear the growing case for the direct use of
natural gas and engage in the conversation with APGA.
It has been an honor and a privilege to serve you, and I hope you'll join me in celebrating the
incredible work we've accomplished this year when we convene in Portland, Oregon at the Annual
Meeting. I'm excited to continue our work to preserve customer choice for natural gas under the
leadership of our organization's incoming Chair, Owen Reeves.
Sincerely,

Greg Henderson
President & CEO, Southeast Gas
Chairman, APGA, 2017-2018
