Benefits of being a member of the MPGA

The Michigan Propane Gas Association (MPGA) represents companies that operate within the propane industry throughout the state of Michigan. The Association’s primary purpose is to maintain high standards of practice within the industry, and in so doing, protect and expand the ability of its members to compete in the marketplace. The Association is dedicated to the betterment of the propane industry and to the customers it serves in Michigan. Membership within the MPGA means even more.

First and foremost, membership in the Michigan Propane Gas Association allows you to be part of the state association for the largest propane consuming state in the entire nation. Networking opportunities abound within the MPGA, and getting involved in MPGA will introduce you to a whole new world of potential customers, mentors, and employers.

  • MPGA membership allows you to participate and be a part of the education programs that are offered throughout the year, to assist propane marketers and dealers in training new service personnel, to help keep present employees aware of new technology, and to keep personnel up to date on their industry skills.
