To ORCGA Membership

I am pleased to announce that Douglas Lapp has been appointed President and CEO of the ORCGA.

Doug has been acting as the interim President and CEO since February 2017.  Since joining the ORCGA, Doug has been working with the staff, membership and the Board to implement the strategic plan of the Alliance and has developed a number of processes and efficiencies within the organization to enhance reporting, effectiveness and strive towards improving membership value.

For those of you who don’t know Doug, he has extensive industry experience as a 34-year employee of Enbridge Gas Distribution serving as a senior leader in the asset and infrastructure management areas. Doug’s broad involvement in the safety, integrity, engineering and operations fields have positioned him well in leading the development of the initiatives to support the ORCGA strategic plan.  Doug has been actively involved with the ORCGA throughout his career and has a strong understanding of our structure and purpose.

Please join the Board in congratulating Doug as the President and CEO of the ORCGA.
