NGA Meetings

NGA’s Membership team holds multiple meetings and events each year designed to support Governors’ offices and their staff members. The meetings provide a robust networking forum and offer educational opportunities, including timely, technical assistance geared to assist Governors, First Spouses and Governors’ staff members in their work serving their states and territories. 

NGA’s flagship events, Winter and Summer meetings, convene Governors to discuss the crucial issues states and territories face, ​including the state-federal partnership, in a series of open plenary sessions and task force meetings, as well as closed-door meetings for Governors only. Contact membership@nga.org to learn more about these meeting opportunities.

Similarly, NGA’s Center for Best Practice routinely hosts meetings around the country to bring together policy experts from the private and public sectors to discuss today’s most pressing public policy challenges and to share innovative solutions and best practices states and territories can harness to meet these challenges. Contact center@nga.org to learn more about policy specific meetings.
