Distinguished Service Award
The Distinguished Service Award Committee is seeking nominations for the Distinguished Service Award (DSA). The Distinguished Service Award is NPGA’s highest honor and the recipient is awarded an honorary lifetime membership in NPGA. The DSA is awarded to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to NPGA or the propane industry. The honoree is selected by the Distinguished Service Award Committee, a panel comprised of all active past presidents and chairmen of NPGA.
Bill Hill Award
The Bill Hill Memorial Award is presented to an NPGA member who has made significant contributions to the propane industry in the area of public affairs at the national, state, or local level. The award honors the memory of the late William C. Hill, who from 1974 to 1979 chaired the National Committee on Propane Allocation and Price Regulations, and includes a grant to an educational institution of the recipient’s choice.
State Director of the Year Award
The State Director of the Year Award recognizes the NPGA State Director deemed outstanding in three principal areas: communicating with members in his/her state, working with NPGA committees, and attending both national and state meetings. The winner is selected by a panel consisting of the current NPGA chairman, the immediate past chairman, and the NPGA district directors.
