NGA

The National Governors’ Association (NGA) is the representative body for school governors in England.

The NGA works for governors by:

  • Supporting local governor associations and governing bodies
  • Lobbying ministers and policy makers
  • Producing high quality guidance and information
  • Organising events and conferences

The NGA produces a termly bulletin, available free of charge to non-members, which is designed to keep all governors up to date with good practice.

Governors can join the NGA as individuals, as members of a governing body, or through their local governors’ association.

Meetings and conferences

Many events are organised throughout the year for members so do check their event webpages if interested to find out more.

‘In my experience’

NGA would like to invite governors to contribute to the ‘In my experience’ page of our bimonthly magazine, Governing Matters. This page is dedicated to the views and opinions of NGA members, partners we work with and people we have come across with interesting stories to tell. Articles are generally 700 words in length and should try to show what other governors can do differently or learn as a result of the writer’s experience. If you are interested in contributing an article please contact our editor, Alison Murdoch, at [email protected].

For more information visit the NGA website.
