Based in southern Georgia, Conger LP Gas was awarded the 2020-21 Presidential Choice Award from the Home Builders Association of South Georgia (HBASG).

Conger joined the association earlier this year and hosted a lunch and learn in October for members to learn about the benefits of propane and the possible applications in new-home construction.

“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,” says Conger LP Gas President and CEO Dan Richardson. “Builders are replacing electric tank water heaters with efficient propane tankless water heaters, and the homeowners love them.”

The award was presented to Conger by Derek Shaw, president of the HBASG, at its 56th Annual Membership and Awards Dinner on Dec. 2 at Quail Branch Lodge in Lake Park, Georgia.

The company has also rehired Kirsten McAlpin as director of marketing and public relations. McAlpin, Conger’s former communications director, went to work for the city of Tifton, Georgia, as the marketing and public relations manager in January of 2020.

In her role with Conger, she will oversee advertising campaigns, event coordination, social media and will be the media spokesperson for the company.

Before joining the Conger LP Gas team in June of 2018, McAlpin was known in the Southeast as a country music singer/songwriter and as a radio personality with iHeartMedia in Georgia on Albany’s B100 WOBB, Columbus’ South 106.1 WSTH and Atlanta’s 94.9 The Bull WRBL.

Conger LP Gas is an independent propane company serving more than 7,000 residential, commercial and agricultural customers in 30 counties across southern Georgia. The company has four locations in Tifton, Sylvester, Vidalia and most recently Moultrie.
