GPA Midstream Association



The Citation for Service Award recognizes an individual for significant contributions to the midstream industry through GPA Midstream participation. Initiated in 1962, it is a mechanism through which leadership and dedicated service to the association and the industry can be recognized, even though such service may have been confined to the team effort of committee work rather than outstanding individual achievement.

The award consists of an engraved, illuminated scroll that summarizes the individual's contributions to the industry. It is conferred annually to one or more individuals at the GPA Midstream Convention during the GPA Midstream Membership Meeting and Chairman’s Luncheon.
