Local association membership

For the executive boards of local associations looking to access governance resources, expert advice and much more.


NGA membership benefits local associations across the country, supporting their executive committees to develop professional governance, keep up to date and compliant, and save time and money.

As they provide a forum for governors and trustees in their area, local associations are an important part of the NGA membership community. They provide vital local information which enables us to represent governing boards’ views with the Department for Education (DfE) and other national bodies.
