These outstanding individuals have shared their time and expertise with the industry through MEA by serving on committees and volunteering at meetings and events.

Former employee of Groebner and past chair of the gas distribution committee, Farr explained that serving on the committee for 17 years gave him the opportunity to share, learn, and discuss topics that greatly affect the companies in the industry. He has exhibited and served as a speaker at many of the 32 MEA learning events he has attended.

Lynch served on the gas distribution committee for nine years and held the chair position for a time during his career at previous employer Ameren Illinois.
