MPCA exists for one simple but profound reason — there is strength in numbers. Together we can accomplish so much more than any single industry member can accomplish individually. MPCA is the only association in Jefferson City that is 100% dedicated to all aspects of the petroleum and convenience store industries.
Lobbying & Political Clout
MPCA’s primary purpose is to protect and advance our member's legislative and regulatory interests
in Jefferson City and Washington, DC. These efforts are enhanced through MPCA’s PAC and PAC Bundling Programs by establishing friendships in both political parties at both the state and federal levels.
Events, Networking & Fellowship
MPCA provides members with business opportunities and social functions that provide interaction with fellow industry members. Annual events include the 4-state PACE trade show, the MPCA PAC golf tournament, MPCA’s Lobby Day and other meetings and fundraiser events.
Publications & Website
MPCA’s Newsletter, Pipeline Magazine, Annual Directory, and PACE Directory provide members with information on important items of interest including legislative issues, state and federal regulations, upcoming events and activities, etc. MPCA’s website offers an abundance of industry information, resources and links.
Regulatory Information & Access
MPCA staff is here to help members with regulatory inquiries and continually monitors state and federal regulatory compliance issues to provide members with timely information and deadline reminders.
National Association Representation
In order to be heard in Washington, DC, MPCA partners with the Petroleum Marketers Association of America (PMAA) and other national associations to lobby on important regulatory and legislative issues at the federal level. In addition, MPCA members may utilize PMAA’s innovative and complete branding package — Spirit.
