INGAA Foundation Executive Director Richard Hoffmann said he plans to retire in August 2017, nearly 10 years after he took the helm of the foundation affiliated with the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America. Hoffmann, who previously had a 34-year career at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, culminating as the director of the Office of Energy Project's division of gas, environment and engineering, said he plans to spend more time with his family. He will depart after the foundation's summer planning and strategy meeting. The foundation brings together natural gas pipeline companies, construction companies, engineering firms, pipe and compressor manufacturers, accounting firms, companies providing information technology services and other suppliers of goods and services to the pipeline industry. In 2008, when Hoffmann started as executive director, the foundation had 105 members; today it boasts more than 200.
