The General Purposes Committee (GPC) is the Society’s technical directorate and is comprised of 30 senior operational executives of member companies representing a balance of LNG, LPG gas tanker and terminal experience. The GPC Chairman reports to the Board and the committee’s main tasks are the initiation and supervision of project activities.
The GPC meets at six monthly intervals, usually in conjunction with the Panel Meetings. Working Groups are established, as the need arises, by the GPC to conduct specific projects and are comprised of experts within this specific field.
The Panel Meeting is open to all Members and has no restriction on attendance. Meetings are usually held at six monthly intervals, and comprise of presentations from members, manufacturers and the Society’s Secretariat that are of specific interest to the liquefied gas industry.
A network of Regional Forums has been developed to further improve liaison with members. These forums aim to improve direct contact with members and make the decision-making organs of the Society more accessible.
