As chair of NGA, I invite you to join governors from across the country in Washington, D. C., at the Marriott Marquis, Feb. 22–25. The Winter Meeting offers a unique platform for governors to discuss important issues facing the country, and an opportunity to share the innovative solutions happening every day at the state level.
The NGA Winter Meeting will focus on some of the most pressing issues facing our nation and what’s ahead for states in areas such as workforce, education, health care, energy, tax reform, and cybersecurity.
My NGA chair’s initiative, “Good Jobs for All Americans,” highlights innovative actions governors can take to connect workers to good-paying careers both today and in the future. Governors across the nation are contributing solutions.
Throughout the weekend, governors will hold meetings to discuss the crucial issues states face, including the state-federal partnership. Those meetings include open plenary sessions and committee meetings, as well as closed-door private meetings for governors only.
NGA Vice Chair Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and I look forward to seeing you in our nation’s capital.
Montana Gov. Steve Bullock
2018-2019 NGA Chair
ABOUT THE WINTER MEETING
The NGA Winter Meeting is one of two primary gatherings of the nation’s governors.
In previous years, governors have met with both the president and congressional leaders.
Governors also convene discussions on a wide range of public policy issues.
The 2019 NGA Winter Meeting will be held at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C. The hotel, at 901 Massachusetts Ave. NW, is located near the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and is easily accessible to all the nation’s capital has to offer.
The full agenda will be released closer to the event.
Plenary sessions are aimed at solutions-based networks for change.
Global trade and interaction will also be a key focus in 2019.
