In 1962, governors from Midwestern states met in Chicago to focus on ways regional governors can work to foster regional development, facilitate interstate cooperation, improve intergovernmental relations and provide a medium for the exchange of views and experiences on subjects of importance to the people of the Midwestern states. At this meeting, governors signed the original articles of incorporation establishing the Midwestern Governors Association.
