Formed in 1961, APGA has over 700 members in 36 states and is the only not-for-profit trade organization that represents America's publicly owned natural gas local distribution companies (LDCs). APGA represents the interests of public gas before Congress, federal agencies and other energy-related stakeholders by developing regulatory and legislative policies that further the goals of our members. In addition, APGA organizes meetings, seminars, and workshops with a specific goal to improve the reliability, operational efficiency, and regulatory environment in which public gas systems operate. Through APGA membership, public gas systems are kept informed about new developments in technology, safety, public policy, operations, and the global markets that could affect the communities and consumers they serve. Our members are owned by, and accountable to, the citizens they serve. They include:
- Municipal gas distribution systems
- Public utility districts
- County districts and other public agencies that have natural gas distribution facilities.
