GPA Midstream Association



The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes individuals for exceptional efforts and achievements over their career that have led to lasting benefits to GPA Midstream and to the midstream industry.


Initiated in 2012, it is a mechanism through which leadership, service and general contributions can be recognized.


The award is not given annually, but is conferred as deemed appropriate by the GPA Midstream Awards Committee. It is presented at the GPA Midstream Convention during the Membership Meeting and Chairman's Luncheon.
