What People Are Saying About Our Conference…

I attended my first SGA Supply Chain Roundtable February 2012. I left with a wealth of knowledge and numerous contacts that I have called on over the years.   After my initial conference, I could not wait to get back to the office and begin to implement some of the things I learned. The topics we covered and the conversations with new Supply Chain friends from my industry made this perhaps the best, most amazing, unforgettable, and exciting training I have ever experienced. Join us and invite a co-worker. They will thank you! (SGA ROCKS!)

– Ann-Marie Stanford,  Alabama Gas Corporation

Not knowing what to expect, I signed up for the Southern Gas Association conference last July. The people I met were discussing supply chain for the energy industry – EXACTLY what I needed to help me improve support for my customers. The personal work experiences they shared with me, and the presentations throughout the conference, were inspirational. Not only did I learn so much at this conference I made business friendships that will last forever. With this type of networking, I am able to consult one of my business friends with issues or questions I have and receive some great feedback. Come join us, and meet me, Devon.

– Devon Bergeron, Mobile Gas Service Corporation
