The LP Gas Hall of Fame will honor its 11th class April 4 at The Westin Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The black-tie event brings the propane industry together for one special night to recognize its past and present leaders. The National Propane Gas Association’s Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo will commence the next day at the Charlotte Convention Center.

This year’s celebration will recognize five individuals whose outstanding insight, dedication and service have elevated the industry to new heights. The Hall of Fame will induct its first couple and staunch industry advocates Joe and Rosie Buschur; innovative executive Randy Doyle; codes and standards expert Bruce Swiecicki; and safety and training guru Mike Walters.

An anonymous selection committee representing different segments of the propane industry elected the class following a year-long nomination process.
