Celebrating 100 Years of Petroleum and Propane Service to South Dakota!
Welcome to the South Dakota Petroleum & Propane Marketers Association
Founded in 1918, we are the only association in South Dakota who represents those in the petroleum and propane business exclusively. The association represents mom and pop stations, bulk fuels, wholesalers, ancillary businesses that support the owners and operators, pipelines and oil companies. Our Motto, “ An organization serving its members by coordinating their common interests through group effort,” reflects the commitment to all members. SDP2MA is your voice in Pierre, SD and Washington, DC. The petroleum, propane convenience marketing industries are the most regulated industries and SDP2MA lobbies year-round to protect your interest. SDP2MA also works closely with National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) and National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) on national issues affecting our industry.
A Proud History of Service!
Our Motto, “ An organization serving its members by coordinating their common interests through group effort,” reflects the commitment to all members.
Dawna Leitzke, Executive Director, has been the voice of the association for 23 years.
