Our Governance structure is as follows:
Board of Directors–Made up of senior industry executives from our member companies, the board of directors determines and directs all NGSA policies and operations. It is also responsible for strategic planning and meets at least three times per year.

Regulatory Affairs Advisors–A working group of member company regulatory professionals, this panel recommends policy as it relates to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). It also guides FERC relations and the promotion of producer interests, including downstream efficiencies. Usually communicates at least weekly via e-mail and / or conference calls.
Government Relations Advisors–The Government Relations team, primarily made up of the member companies’ Washington representatives, is responsible for federal legislative strategy and oversees NGSA’s legislative agenda and activities. Communicates regularly via e-mail and meets as needed.
