The American Gas Association, founded in 1918, represents more than 200 local energy companies that deliver clean natural gas throughout the United States. There are more than 71 million residential, commercial and industrial natural gas customers in the U.S., of which 92 percent — more than 65 million customers — receive their gas from AGA members. Today, natural gas meets almost one-fourth of the United States' energy needs.

The AGA luncheon presentation will focus on the outlook for the natural gas utility sector, including supply and demand, as well as legislative and regulatory issues and priorities.  Also, we will address various issues impacting investment in the natural gas utilities.


Lawrence (Larry) T. Borgard is president and chief operating officer of utilities at Integrys Energy Group, Inc., and serves as chief executive officer of each of Integrys' six electric and natural gas utilities. He is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the utilities, which operate across four Midwestern states and serve 1.6 million natural gas customers and 500,000 electric customers. Borgard has spent 26 years in the energy industry. He began his career at Wisconsin Public Service in 1984 as an associate engineer. He subsequently held positions in, and managed, areas including field operations, regulatory compliance, transmission and planning. More recently, he has held a number of executive-level positions within multiple Integrys subsidiaries. He holds a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from Michigan State University, a master's degree in business administration from the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh, and he is a graduate of the Harvard Business School's Advanced Management Program. Borgard is the 2012 chairman of the American Gas Association and serves on the board of directors for the Midwest Energy Association, the Metropolitan Planning Council in Chicago, Bellin Health, the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, and Better by the Bay.

As president and CEO, McCurdy is responsible for representing and promoting the interests of 199 local energy utility companies that deliver natural gas throughout the nation. McCurdy joined AGA after serving for four years as president and CEO of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (Alliance). He led the Alliance during a period of unprecedented economic, environmental, and regulatory challenges for the auto industry. During his tenure, the Alliance recorded significant achievements and McCurdy was instrumental in developing the historic agreement between automakers and the Obama administration establishing the national program to increase fuel economy by 40 percent and decrease greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent by 2016. Prior to his work at the Alliance, McCurdy served for eight years as president and CEO of the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA), where he helped promote the market development and competitiveness of the U.S. high-tech industry by crafting both domestic and international programs and policies for EIA’s nearly 1,300 member companies.
