Like most associations, NGA's meetings are the business meetings of the organization. These are meetings for NGA members – not meetings for the general public. No outside groups or individuals participate in the meetings, unless they are invited speakers or panelists. Registered attendees for NGA meetings can observe business sessions, but they do not participate. C-SPAN often airs these business sessions. No attendees, including the media, are allowed to observe "Governors-only" sessions.
