The National Governance Association aims to represent all school governors and trustees in England; there are over 300,000 governors, the largest volunteer group in the UK.

The NGA offers the opportunity to advertise to our members through our high quality colour magazine Governing Matters, and through exhibiting or placing material in the delegate packs at our national conferences. 

The NGA welcomes support in the form of sponsorship (Sponsors). If you would like to be considered as a sponsor in the future, please e-mail NGA’s chief executive Emma Knights. In the meantime, why not take advantage of some of the other opportunities. 

NGA magazine

Governing Matters is the journal of the National Governance Association exclusively for members. Published six times a year, this high quality magazine is distributed direct to governors' home addresses, with additional copies sent to schools and local authorities.

Governing Matters has 40 pages of information guidance and comment, and has a minimum circulation of 20,000. The vast majority of these are delivered directly to our members, but we also send them to events we attend throughout the year. 

If you are interested in finding out more about advertising in the magazine, please contact Jamie McCoy on 020 7079 9364 or email You can also view our media pack: Governing Matters Media Pack.

NGA conferences and events

The NGA holds two national conferences for members each year in June and November. They move around the country to give more members the opportunity to attend. We have attracted some high profile speakers in the past, including Her Majesty's Chief Inspector and Lord Nash, which normally attracts around 200 delegates. You can book exhibition space, or place material in our delegate packs. For more information on the next events and for pricing, please contact our office manager Victoria Stokoe
