American Gas Association Luncheon Presentation

Wednesday January 30, 2013 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM
NYSSA Conference Center
Available as: Live Session;
Categories: Seminar

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.

This AGA luncheon and presentation will focus on the outlook for natural gas demand and supply, as well as regulatory and legislative changes.  The presentation will emphasize the potential impact of climate and energy legislation, and will address various issues regarding investment in this sector:

  • Natural gas supply/demand
  • Other key legislative and White House issues
  • Investment outlook
  • FERC and state regulatory issues


Ronald W. Jibson serves as chairman of AGA’s 2013 Board of Directors. Jibson is chairman, president, and CEO of Questar Corp., and was elected alongside several other officers during AGA’s Annual Corporate Meeting in Boston, Mass. Questar Corporation, based in Salt Lake City, Utah, is a natural gas–focused energy company with three major lines of business—retail gas distribution, interstate gas transportation, and gas production—which are conducted through its three principal subsidiaries: Questar Gas, Questar Pipeline, and Wexpro. Jibson joined Questar Gas (formerly Mountain Fuel Supply Co.) as a design engineer in 1980 and held various engineering and administrative positions. He served as senior vice president of Questar Gas and Questar Corp. from March 2008 to June 2010. He served as executive vice president of Questar Gas Company from March 2008 to September 2008 and also served as its vice president of operations and director of engineering. Jibson serves as chairman of the board of Questar Corporation and all its subsidiaries and has been a director of those entities since July 2010. He currently serves as director of the Gas Technology Institute and chair of the Western Energy Institute. He lives in Salt Lake City where he is a director of the Salt Lake Chamber and Utah Economic Development Corp. and chairman of the Board of Trustees for Utah State University.

Dave McCurdy joined the American Gas Association (AGA) as president and CEO in February 2011. 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 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. In April 2001, McCurdy cofounded the Internet Security Alliance as a nonprofit collaboration between EIA and the Carnegie Mellon University CyLab to enhance cyber security. Before his tenure at EIA, McCurdy had a distinguished career in Congress, spending 14 years (1981–1995) in the House of Representatives as the Member from the Fourth Congressional District of Oklahoma. Dave McCurdy was appointed by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates to the Defense Policy Board and served on the board from 2008–2011 in both the Bush and Obama administrations. In 2011, McCurdy cofounded the Coalition for a Fiscally Sound America. McCurdy is a 1972 graduate of the University of Oklahoma and received his JD in 1975 from Oklahoma Law School.
