4th Annual Appalachian Regional Conference

Please join us for the 4th Annual Appalachian Regional Conference (ARC 2020) on September 23, 2020 at the historic George Washington Hotel in Washington, PA. 

GPA Midstream acknowledges that COVID-19 still presents many unknowns when it comes to restrictions on large gatherings, so we will be prepared to offer speakers' presentations in a virtual format if we are not able to hold the live event.

 


CALL FOR SPEAKERS

If you are interested in applying to speak at the ABGPA ARC, we are currently accepting abstracts.  Speakers will still have the opportunity to present to registered conference attendees regardless of the conference format.

Before submitting an abstract, please know that first, and most importantly, you agree to ensure that your presentation is a sales-free zone.  The primary focus of the ABGPA ARC is sharing knowledge and best practices to benefit the midstream industry as a whole.  With that in mind, we are not looking for papers or presentations pitching a specific company or service. Please review the other speaker guidelines before submitting your abstract here:

If selected, an ABGPA ARC Committee Member will be in touch with more information.
