Get Involved


ABGPA hosts technical & operations trainings throughout the year. The goal of each event is to provide our members with valuable information that can be used in day-to-day activities and/or in the field.  ABGPA makes an effort to schedule a variety of instructors/speakers and topics that will appeal to both midstream and operator companies, while also encouraging effective networking and career growth!

Spring Roundtable

ABGPA holds a technical roundtable every spring which invites our members and attendees to hear presentations on various operational topics. In between the keynote speakers’ presentations, attendees are encouraged to walk around and mingle with the year’s exhibitors, speakers, and sponsors. Lunch, appetizers, and drinks are included in admission price.

National Convention

The GPA Midstream Convention is "where midstream meets". For more than nine decades, GPA Midstream has led the industry in research, technology, setting and adopting standards for natural gas and natural gas liquids, and more recently, working with legislators and regulators to represent the industry at state and federal levels.

Each year, the GPA Midstream Convention brings together about 2,000 professionals involved in natural gas gathering, compression, treating, processing, storage and marketing, and natural gas liquids fractionation, transportation, storage and marketing, all with the common interest of meeting about – and making a difference in – midstream matters.

Social Events & Happy Hours

ABGPA strives to provide social events for our membership and guests. You can unwind after a stressful week at one of our quarterly happy hours, or network with fellow industry peers at a baseball game. Our social events are typically timed to coincide with other events on the ABGPA calendar, such as training sessions, so you can maximize your time if you traveled from out of town.

Volunteer Events

Appalachian Basin GPA Midstream Chapter (ABGPA) provides opportunities throughout the year for members to support the communities in which they live. Each community outreach event gives members a chance to work together and meet & mingle with friends and peers from the local oil and gas industry. 

Annual Holiday Party

ABGPA takes an evening and combines it with a specialty venue, heavy hors d’oeuvres, open bar, live band, etc. to look back on the year, celebrate the holidays, and ring in the new year with friends and colleagues. This event is a great opportunity to “Eat, Drink & Be Merry” with peers or your significant other, so join us!
