2018 AMM Details

We hope you have made your plans to join us in St. Simons Island for the upcoming 2018 Annual Membership Meeting.

We are excited about this year’s meeting program and our return to St. Simon’s Island, and we know you won’t want to miss it!  The King & Prince is a beautiful, historic, oceanside resort that has quickly become a preferred AMM destination for our Members, so we know that you will enjoy your stay on Georgia’s beautiful coast.

This important event is a very valuable opportunity for our Members to come together and share information about the operations of their natural gas system, regional marketing efforts, local community, and public awareness initiatives. The general sessions offer focused training opportunities for all meeting attendees, and the overall conference provides a valuable forum to interact and share discussions with other energy industry professionals, financial and legal partners, as well as the Gas Authority staff.
