About Us


Governing: The Future of States and Localities takes on the question of what state and local government looks like in a world of rapidly advancing technology. Governing is a resource for elected and appointed officials and other public leaders who are looking for smart insights and a forum to better understand and manage through this era of change.

 Governing’s beat is the collision of technology and society and the fallout consequences, intended and unintended, that confront public leaders and increasingly influence their policy, legislation and strategies to govern. The scope of topics we cover are as broad as the challenges we face: privacy, financial systems, big data, security, the future of work, urban planning, artificial intelligence and more. Governing’s finance channel covers government funds to cryptocurrencies, muni bonds to opportunity zones, pay-as-you-go to long-term financing, direct taxation to P3s.

 Governing’s audience consists of governors, mayors, county executives, city and county council members, treasurers, CFOs, budget analysts/directors, finance directors, assessors, auditors, council members, commissioners, state legislators, state and local agency executives and those holding key professional government positions.
