Presidential Choice Award
Conger LP Gas was recently awarded the 2020-2021 Presidential Choice Award from The Home Builders Association of South Georgia. The award was presented to Conger LP Gas by Derek Shaw, president of the Home Builders Association, at their 56th Annual Membership and Awards Dinner on December 2, 2021, at Quail Branch Lodge in Lake Park, Georgia.
Conger LP Gas, which joined earlier this year, has participated in several association events and hosted a Lunch & Learn in October for members to learn about the benefits of propane and all the possible applications for using it in new-home construction.
“We are honored and humbled to receive this recognition from the South Georgia Home Builder’s Association and its president, Derek Shaw, who is one of the premier homebuilders in the Valdosta area. Members like Derek have become not just customers, but also good friends and we highly value the trust and the relationships we have already made. Homebuilders in South Georgia are seeing the value of having propane appliances in their homes and the response with this association has already been amazing. Builders are replacing electric tank water heaters with efficient propane tankless water heaters and the homeowners love them,” said Conger LP Gas President and CEO Dan Richardson.
