TULSA, Okla., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Gas Processors
Association (GPA) today announced two new director appointments for the
incorporated non-profit trade association serving the midstream energy sector.


GPA has named Debbie Beaver as director of technical services and hired
Crystal Myers in the newly created director of communications position. 

Prior to joining GPA, Beaver started her career with The Williams Companies
and worked in various roles with the company for more than 25 years. Her most
recent position in government affairs required extensive familiarity with the
industry's concepts, practices and procedures.

In her role as director of technical services, Beaver will be responsible for
leading the association's research and technical initiatives. Through its
cooperative research program, GPA has invested more than $14 million toward
research efforts that have resulted in 200+ reports and 30 technical
publications, benefitting the industry and serving as an example for other
cooperative programs.

"GPA was founded in the 1920s because of the desperate need for natural gas
specifications at that time, so research and technical activities are the core
of this association, even to this day," said Mark Sutton, GPA executive
director. "Debbie has brought with her a wealth of industry knowledge to GPA,
along with invaluable organizational, analytical and research skills. We are
pleased that she'll be leading these important efforts."

Myers joins GPA as director of communications, having most recently worked in
a communications role for the association on a contract basis for the past 6
years through Dollahon Public Relations. Prior to that, she worked for
ConocoPhillips' corporate communications and transportation divisions with
focus on internal communications at the company's headquarters in Houston.

Myers will serve as the media contact for the association and will develop and
oversee the organization's overall communications strategy.

"Our increased advocacy efforts have continuously heightened GPA's visibility,
especially during the last five years," Sutton said. "Crystal's
communications expertise and her knowledge of our association and industry
will further strengthen GPA's identity with our stakeholders."

GPA will connect with more than 2,000 stakeholders at its 92^nd annual GPA
Convention, which will be held in San Antonio, Texas, April 7 – 10. The
conference brings together midstream professionals from around the world to
share the latest information in research, technology, legislative and
regulatory matters and safe operations.
