Our world is filled with opportunities and products we can be grateful for, and natural gas plays a key role in many parts of our day-to-day that we may take for granted. Every day employees in our industry make an enormous impact as we deliver natural gas through rough terrains and extreme climates. Similarly, many organizations find unique and powerful ways to give back and build up the communities in which they serve.
This webinar, as part of the SGA 2021 Chairman’s campaign, aims to highlight how natural gas organizations make a difference. First, Southern Gas Association’s CEO, Suzanne Ogle, will highlight the different ways natural gas blesses our daily lives and illustrate how engrained its use is in our modern society. Next, SGA will highlight the variety of projects performed by organizations throughout the association that have been submitted for our annual Community Service award. Last year’s award winner will then present on their 2020 community service work.
