About the NEGC...
The New England Governors' Conference (NEGC), an informal alliance since colonial days, was formally established in 1937 by the governors of the six-state region to promote New England's economic development. In 1981, the Conference incorporated as a non-partisan, non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation, with the region's six governors serving as its Board of Directors. Annually, the governors selected a chairman to oversee the activities of the organization.
