Membership Information

NCoGS members in good standing have access to e-document repositories and the organization email distribution list. Members in good standing are those who have paid membership dues (as applicable) in one of the following ways for the current or upcoming membership year (runs November 1 - October 31):

Shared Electronic Resources

Current members have access to a shared Google Drive. If you are a member in good standing, you may request access to the shared drive by submitting your request with a Google Account to the web manager. Recent conference attendees who are new members will receive an invitation to access the resource shortly after the annual meeting.

Email Distribution List

Members in good standing will receive an invitation to join the NCoGS email list. You may also visit the list information page to request to join; all requests are cross-referenced with membership lists prior to acceptance.

Complete the membership application form and send, with check or money order made payable to the National Conference of Governor's Schools, to the address listed below.

Annual dues are $75 for active and associate members, and membership runs from November 1 to October 31 of the calendar year. Associate membership dues are waived for full-time students and alumni, but we suggest a $10 contribution from such members.


The first and most significant benefit of membership in the National Conference of Governor's Schools is belonging to a group of like-minded individuals who are involved in the same project as you. Governor's schools are relatively uncommon across the nation, so the understanding and appreciation of fellow governor's school laborers and devotees is welcoming and refreshing.


There are two categories of membership: Organization and Individual. Organizational memberships are conferred free of charge to any program that qualifies, according to our bylaws, as a governor's school. Individual memberships are conferred to paying applicants who fulfill the requirements of membership set forward in the bylaws.
