What is Inspiring Governance? 

Inspiring Governance is a new free service in partnership with the National Governors’ Association (NGA) which connects volunteers interested in becoming governors or trustees with recruiting boards nationwide.

Recruiting boards can search easily and quickly for the skills and experience they need.
