Executive Communication Taskforce


Provides a platform for communication leaders in the natural gas industry

The newly formed SGA Executive Communications Task Force provides a platform for communication leaders like you to prepare for the challenges we have immediately in front of us and on the horizon.

More than just a roundtable, the Task Force is an opportunity for us to collaborate, learn from each other and leverage effective communication strategies from our own companies with each other in our fight to advocate for our industry and the role of natural gas in a long-term clean energy future.
