Benchmarking Council

Your Competitive Edge

The NPGA Benchmarking Council provides opportunities for propane marketers to create, learn, and compete more effectively by working with other marketers who share the same challenges. Even the most experienced marketers identify new ideas and better business practices as members of Benchmarking!  

Ask yourself the following questions to find out if you can benefit from engaging in benchmarking activities:

  • Do others in the propane business do anything better than I do?
  • Am I interested in new ideas to improve my business practices?

If your answer to any of these questions is a yes, chances are the Benchmarking Council can help you just as it has helped many other members.

How Do I Join?

You’re invited to attend an upcoming meeting to experience the benefits of Benchmarking for yourself:

  • March 14-15, 2024: Houston, Texas
