Join us for the 2016 MPGA Summer Convention, July 20-22, at Crystal Mountain Resort. Learn from experts about those topics which are most important to the propane industry. Bring your family and enjoy the many activities and amenities. 


This year’s theme is "Propane at Work," focusing on propane and farming. There will be an area outside of the Crystal Convention Center available to display related items. Showcase your antique tractors or propane-powered tractors, as well as other farming equipment. Supplier members are encouraged to bring agriculture-related products to display. This outdoor display will be set up throughout the convention with the purpose of sharing what the propane industry has to offer the farming community. To reserve space for your equipment or for assistance, contact Geri Root at
