St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
MEA is happy to announce that the 2013 National Gas Rodeo will take place in Fairview Heights, Il from September 19-21. The men and women who work in natural gas distribution are integral parts of our everyday lives. They keep our homes warm in winter and keep our water hot. They are ‘unseen heroes’ who take pride in their jobs and doing the work safely. The National Gas Rodeo gives them an opportunity to shine and to discuss innovative and safe ways to do their jobs with others in the industry.
The National Gas Rodeo is expected to draw teams from utilities across the nation that see real value in letting their crews put themselves to the test. These companies believe that participating in the National Gas Rodeo can play an important role in developing a mindset and skill-set of excellence and professionalism.
The National Gas Rodeo thanks all their sponsors for supporting this event including, Case Construction Equipment and Val-Tex the premier sponsors. Without our many sponsors, this event would not be possible.
