APGA Membership for a Municipal Gas System

Our municipal gas members are publicly-owned natural gas systems that are owned by, and accountable to, the citizens they serve. We advocate on behalf of our members helping them strengthen their systems by providing access to the latest industry trends on safety standards, competitiveness, regulations and other important issues that affect their system.

2020 Municipal Gas System dues structure is as follows:

  • Dues are 89 cents per meter for systems between 501-60,000 meters.
  • If your system has below 500 meters, APGA dues are a flat rate of $445.
  • If your system has between 60,001 - 200,000 meters then dues are a flat fee of $53,400.
