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.
