Leaders Make A Difference Awards at OpCon 2016

At the 2016 Operating Conference and Exhibits, Southern Gas Association recognized two individuals who demonstrate outstanding commitment in their roles within the organization serving on committees and special interest groups with the Leaders Make a Difference Award.

This award is given to a member nominated by the membership or staff who has demonstrated exceptional leadership in support of the Southern Gas Association, having gone above and beyond. The individuals have either provided committee leadership in some unique way or developed a project collaboratively with peer members. The results of their efforts impacted SGA in a way that made SGA more relevant to the membership.
