Hall-Long secures bid as Delaware hosts National Lieutenant Governors Association Annual Meeting in 2019

Dover, DE – The National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA) has selected Delaware to host the nation’s lieutenant governors in 2019 for its summer annual meeting. The meeting convenes Lt. Governors and seconds-in-command from across the country to discuss policy ideas, initiatives, and best practices among the states.

“Along with being the First State, Delaware leads our nation in many other ways as well,” said Lt. Governor Bethany Hall Long.  “From our world class judicial system and legal services, a thriving agriculture industry, and entrepreneurial and academic innovation, Delaware has a lot to offer.”

“NLGA is excited to bring together and engage lieutenant governors from across the country in Delaware next summer,” said NLGA Director Julia Hurst.  “Delaware offers outstanding opportunities for the exchange of information vital to all states and territories.”

Lt. Governor Hall Long made the bid to host the meeting at a recent NLGA conference in Washington D.C.  “In my bid, I showcased Delaware and what our state offers visitors from across the nation,” said Lt. Governor Hall-Long. “The bid was accepted unanimously and I am looking forward to laying the groundwork for the meeting.”

Representative Helene Keeley of Wilmington noted how well suited Delaware is to host a national conference. “Delaware’s size and accessibility make it a prime location to host national leaders from around the country and highlight all that our state has to offer,” said Rep. Keeley. “I have no doubt that Delaware will serve as the perfect forum for next year’s NLGA conference”. Keeley helped plan and coordinate the Council of State Government’s (CSG) Eastern Region Conference that took place in Delaware in 2015. She will be the National Chair in 2019.

NLGA was founded in 1962 and this will be the first time Delaware has hosted a NLGA Annual Meeting. The next convening will be in June of 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
