Conference

The Annual Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers traditionally rotates it’s location every year between Eastern Canada and the New England region with each jurisdiction having the opportunity to host. The Conference itself can range from two to three days in length and cover a variety of topics including energy, environment, trade, and infrastructure. The theme of the conference is different every year and is determined by the host jurisdiction; although the focus remains on regional issues. Governors, premiers, governmental staff, and business leaders gather for panel discussions, networking opportunities, and signing of resolutions and reports.

2019 Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers (NEG/ECP) Conference Cancelled

Unfortunately due to Hurricane Dorian, the 2019 Conference of New England Governors and Eastern Canadian Premiers (NEG/ECP) in New Brunswick had to be cancelled.

The devastation and impact of the hurricane is yet another example of the importance of regional collaboration in reference to climate change and adaptation, ironically one of the panel topics of the conference. Climate change can be linked to the increase in ocean temperature and water vapor in the atmosphere which in turn, created a perfect environment for Hurricane Dorian. More information on this correlation can be found here.

We are pleased to announce that the 43rd NEG/ECP Conference will be held on the beautiful Connecticut Shoreline on September 20th-22nd 2020. Please check back for more information or visit NEGECP.org for all conference details.
