America's Smartland

Periodically, the MGA will host an America’s Smartland initiative to bring together state staff, relevant stake-holders, and policy experts to discuss pressing regional issues, share experiences, and brainstorm solutions to issues of importance in the region. Typically, the MGA holds a series of conference calls or webinars followed by an in-person meeting on the specific topic to provide states the opportunity to discuss the issue in-person and connect with relevant people, groups, and/or subject-matter experts. The other type of activity under the America’s Smartland branding is to highlight a regional best practice or success story in a one-pager and webinar. Examples of both can be found below.
