NCoGS offers three different types of memberships. Active and Associate Memberships may be selected by the individual petitioning for membership, while Honorary memberships are bestowed by the Board of Directors.
The National Conference of Governor's Schools, Inc. is devoted exclusively to educational, research, and charitable purposes that promote, aid, and advance education, particularly as related to governor's schools.
NCoGS members are faculty, staff, alumni, parents, administrators, and supervisors of governor's school programs from around the country. Membership is offered only to individuals, not to institutions or programs, so all NCoGS members are individuals involved in, or interested in, governor's school programs.
