2024 Expo: Thank You!

NPGA would like to thank everyone who attended the 2024 Southeastern Convention & International Propane ExpoTM  — you helped make it a great success!

Expo was packed with opportunities to meet new people, grow your business, and celebrate the propane industry — from NASCAR legend Rusty Wallace’s keynote address to the WIP Leadership Forum to educational sessions to the prayer breakfast with Tiffany Johnson and all the networking in between!

At the opening session, NPGA’s Steve Kaminski recognized Jack Roush, an icon of American motorsports and one of the most successful automotive entrepreneurs of all time. In addition to his racing success, Jack is founder and chairman of Roush Enterprises, which oversees ROUSH CleanTech, a manufacturer of propane fuel systems that is responsible for putting almost 30,000 propane vehicles on the roads today and accounting for more than 1.5 billion gallons of propane sold. Jack’s daughter, Susan Roush-McClenaghan, herself a six-time national championship winner, accepted the award on her father’s behalf, pictured above with Steve.

Charlotte welcomed the propane industry with open arms and we look forward to going back to the Queen City for next year’s Expo on April 4 – 6, 2025. Mark your calendars!

Rusty Wallace met fans and signed autographs in the NPGA booth following his keynote presentation.

The Women in Propane Council hosted a special LIVE interactive Through the Leadership Lens Podcast.  Bridget Kidd and Freddie Ridler moderated a panel of some of the podcast’s past guests and navigated questions about leadership from the live audience.
