The NGA chair, vice chair and other members of the nine-person Executive Committee, who are elected annually, supervise the association's operations on behalf of the entire membership. NGA maintains four standing committees – Economic Development and Commerce; Education, Early Childhood and Workforce; Health and Human Services; and Natural Resources – enabling governors to examine and develop policy and address key state and national issues. NGA also creates special ad hoc task forces of select governors to focus on high-priority issues for states, including a "Chair's Initiative" task force organized each year to reflect the special focus of the chair.
