PLCA President Brian Ganske

“This is an outstanding PLCA program,” said Ganske. “Each year the PLCA Scholarship Foundation awards 12 scholarships of $7,500 each. We hope to increase the number of scholarships to 15 in 2011 and perhaps increase each to $10,000. Including this year, our Scholarship Foundation has awarded 86 scholarships to our members’ children, stepchildren and grandchildren.”

Ganske’s term as president ends at the association’s annual convention in February at which time his successor will be elected.

“I am grateful to our members for electing me 2010 PLCA president, and I have enjoyed my term,” said Ganske. “We still have issues to resolve, but our strong leadership will handle them as they come.”

Ganske is executive vice president of the Snelson Companies, Inc. which has grown from a family-owned plumbing business founded in 1946 into one of the country's premier pipeline contractors serving the natural gas and liquid pipelines, facilities construction and fabrication, and gas distribution markets.

Established in 1948, the Pipe Line Contractors Association,, is headquartered in Dallas. J. Patrick Tielborg is managing director and general counsel.
