National Governors Association

Founded in 1908, the National Governors' Association (NGA) brings together all American governors, both democrats and republicans. Its mission is as follows:

  • promote state leadership
  • share best practices on governance and public policy
  • provides states with a unified voice on matters of national interest.

The NGA speaks for and defends the U.S. states regarding matters of national interest in Washington, D.C., and before the U.S. federal Administration. Its Center for Best Practices helps develop innovative solutions to the states' public policy challenges.

NGA members meet at least twice a year — once at the annual meeting held in a different state each summer, and again during a winter meeting held in Washington, D.C. The meetings are an opportunity for the governors to engage in direct conversation with the U.S. federal Administration.
