National Governance Association

The National Governance Association (NGA) is the representative body for school governors and trustees in England.

The NGA works for governors by:

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

Governors can join the NGA as individuals or as members of a governing board, or multi academy trust. For more information visit the NGA website.

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, Governance 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].
