Governor Gregg will serve one year in the position of Chair Elect and then assume the Chairmanship of the organization at an Annual Meeting in Des Moines, Iowa, in August of 2023.
“I’m honored to be chosen by my peers to assume this leadership role. The NLGA is a place where lieutenant governors share ideas and best practices to advance opportunities for our states and our constituents,” Lt. Governor Gregg said. “We work to find effective ways to address new problems, foster cooperation between states and generally improve effectiveness in our states.”
“Lt. Governor Gregg’s selection demonstrates the confidence his peers across the nation have in his ability to lead this important organization,” said NLGA Director Julia Brossart. “His position was confirmed by all members attending the Annual Meeting in Illinois.”
NLGA provides a medium for networking and the exchange of essential information among officials, including international exchange, while providing timely discussion of topics from agriculture, rural affairs, and transportation to housing and health. NLGA actively promotes STEM education in the states by providing specific STEM education support in states.
The NLGA was formed in 1962 as the professional and educational association for the elected officials who are first in line of succession to the governors of the 50 states and five territorial jurisdictions of American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Gov. Kim Reynolds is a former chair of NLGA, serving from July 2015 to July 2016.
