Message from our chair

A Regional Perspective: A unified voice for Midwestern Governors

Welcome to the Midwestern Governors Association website!


As Chair of the MGA for 2017, I look forward to working with my fellow Midwestern governors to promote Midwestern forestry and natural resources issues.

Most Midwesterners enjoy an unsurpassed quality of life. Our four distinct seasons, cultural and sporting activities, culinary delights, affordability, natural beauty, and the friendly nature of its residents continue to make the region a go-to location. The Midwest has a thriving pulse from international city-centers to urban regrowth to rural communities serving as our nation’s backbone. With quality education systems, low crime rates, close-knit communities and numerous outdoor recreational activities, Midwestern states and their rural communities continue to be excellent places to live, work, raise a family and grow a business. The association will work to promote the economic, recreational, and tourism benefits of the regions’ forests. By working together, states can maximize the economic and recreational potential of our forests.

I look forward to working with my fellow governors to ensure our region continues to be the best place to live, work, start a family, get an education, visit, do business and someday even retire.
