The mission of the Appalachian Pipeliners Association is to promote pipeline engineering and operational best practices that will benefit both association membership and the pipeline industry as a whole. It is both non-profit and non-political.
The focus is to raise scholarship funds supporting secondary educational opportunities for the youth of the northern Appalachian region. Funds are raised through memberships, donations and annual outings. Association members assemble socially for presentations, speakers and discussions on matters relevant to the pipeline industry.
