Founded in 1908, the National Governors Association (NGA) is the collective, bipartisan voice of the nation’s governors and one of Washington, DC’s most respected public policy organisations. Its members are the governors of the 55 states, territories and commonwealths. NGA provides governors and their senior staff members with services that range from representing states on Capitol Hill and before the Administration on key federal issues to developing and implementing innovative solutions to public policy challenges through the NGA Center for Best Practices.
The NGA organises meetings of Governors twice annually, in the summer, rotated through the US states, and a winter session, traditionally held in Washington DC. Almost all State Governors attend the meetings.
