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 2018, I look forward to working with my fellow Midwestern governors to be on the forefront of anticipating changes that are coming because of technology’s profound and transformative impact on our society and workforce.

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 chair’s agenda will explore

how to prepare our region for the next technological revolution by looking at how education and training intersects with our region’s strengths in infrastructure, advanced technology, automation and energy. This will allow the Midwest to be a premier location for success far into the future.

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.
