Executive Planning Committee – Operations Gas

This Committee consists of senior executives of key business lines in Gas Operations. The committee conveys member companies’ education/leadership needs to WEI, recommends leaders to serve on program delivery teams, communicates WEI program offerings back to member organizations, and monitors participation and evaluation of WEI activities. Participants in the EPC Planning Session assist in building valuable programs for employees and their peers, identify key contributors to learn and grow, and promote these programs within their companies.
