The Role of the Governing Body

The Gastech Governing Body is made up of a senior, select group of 45 industry professionals, representing the full global gas & LNG supply chains – commercially as well as technically. The heritage of some members goes back 40 years and Gastech is proud that its conference is developed and run purely by the industry, for the industry. With no political agenda or obligation to any over-arching organisations, Gastech’s Governing Body is free to advise and select the very best possible content for the conference agenda.

The Responsibility of our Members

Members of Gastech’s Governing Body examine then approve each Gastech conference agenda, selecting themes and topics, helping invite and engage keynote and plenary speakers, and then ultimately vote on all abstracts before selecting the ‘winning’ papers that make the final programme. The process is completely democratic and no one vote is worth more than another.

Duties of our Members

It is a prestigious and critical role as the votes and decisions made by the Governing Body determine the full outcome of each edition’s conference agenda, ensuring we truly develop every programme ‘by the industry, for the benefit of the industry’.

Competition for conference speaking opportunities is always fierce and for every one paper selected for the final programme, another seven are unfortunately rejected. It is the duty of the Governing Body to deliver the best possible, most rounded programme for the global energy community who attend.
