National Governors Association

NGA empowers solutions to public policy challenges through collaboration between governors and the private sector, promoting bipartisanship and thoughtful, diverse leadership. NGA believes state-based innovation and inclusion drive meaningful change across the nation. NGA is dedicated to sharing emerging trends and bolstering participation.

About This Project

NGA is the collective voice of the nation’s governors and one of the nation’s most respected public policy organizations. Our team led the redesign effort for NGA’s year-long digital relaunch — and we have been working with the association since then to develop digital outlets for new initiatives, advocacy campaigns and best practices research.

We designed and developed a custom WordPress theme for the organization, migrated many years of content from a legacy CMS platform, and restructured URLs to preserve SEO friendly links. Since launch, we have supported NGA by creating multiple micro-sites for the Center for Best Practices and custom pages for new and ongoing initiatives, including governor-led efforts in workforce, education, energy, infrastructure and health.

Among the recent work:

• Then-Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval’s “Ahead of the Curve” initiative that examined everything from how we heat and cool our buildings to the cars we drive, or that drive themselves, in a roadmap for state leaders.

•  The NGA Outdoor Recreation Learning Network, which helps governors and their staffs explore strategies to leverage unique natural, cultural and historical resources and promotes economic, social and environmental benefits.

• Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s yearlong initiative to advance the repair, enhancement and modernization of our nation’s infrastructure.

A Three-Branch Toolkit for Reforming Child Welfare that helps state leaders communicate effectively among branches, understand and respect the complementary roles of each branch, effectively share information and data, navigate differing views and perspectives, develop cross-branch strategies that achieve shared goals, and engage the public to build buy-in and a sense of ownership of both the issues and the solutions affecting child and family well-being.
