Twice a year, in the winter and summer, governors meet 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 also holds multiple events throughout the year tailored to public policy issues, as well as global trade and development.
