Gas Ops Forum

Focused discussions and learning for gas utility personnel


MEA Energy Association (MEA) has been closely monitoring Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and all recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We have also been following the impact on the companies we serve. Your wellbeing and the safety of your communities are paramount to us.

For that reason, we are cancelling the Gas Ops Forum scheduled for April 7-9, 2020 in Madison, WI. We truly value your support and commitment to MEA and our in-person learning events. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We are working with the planning committees to incorporate a portion of the valuable informal learning and important discussions planned for Gas Ops Forum into the Gas Operations Technical & Leadership Summit this year.

This annual spring event is the place for discussing and networking with other gas utility professionals in sessions that are moderated by industry experts. Share your insight and get solutions to current issues.


This annual forum offers 46 timely and engaging hot topics selected and facilitated by industry leaders. Session tracks include Codes & Standards, Gas Distribution, Gas System Controls, Measurement & Controls, and Safety.
