NGA WINTER MEETING 

FEBRUARY 23-26 IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
 

It's February.

Which means it's the time of year when the nation's governors gather in Washington, D.C., for their annual Winter Meeting. This year topics will range from international cooperation, technology and innovation, education, workforce development, agriculture and the opioid epidemic. We expect upwards of 40 governors to attend, along with Administration officials, international leaders, and members of the private sector and media.
