America's Smartland Series

The MGA hosts an ongoing America's Smartland Series to bring together state staff, relevant stake-holders, and policy experts to discuss pressing regional issues, share experiences, and brainstorm solutions to issues of importance in the region. Typically, the MGA holds a few conference calls with state staff to gain a solid understanding of the concern or need, and then host a day-long meeting on the specific topic to pro-vide states the opportunity to discuss the issue in-person and connect with relevant people, groups, and/or subject-matter experts.
