The National Governance Association aims to represent all school governors and trustees in England; there are over 250,000 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 email In the meantime, why not take advantage of some of the other opportunities. 

NGA magazine advertising 

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 33,000. The vast majority of these are delivered directly to our members, but we also send them to events we attend throughout the year.
