Happy New Year! We are excited to announce that this year’s Governmental Research Association conference will take place at Pew Charitable Trusts in Washington, D.C. between July 26-July 29, 2020. We will be staying at the lovely Kimpton Hotel Monaco just across from Pew in bustling Chinatown.

As you plan your budget for 2020, please think of GRA as professional development and bring your team! This year’s conference will focus on the issues, feature skills training, and provide opportunities for team bonding and leadership development. Save the date for now, and we will be back in touch with the details soon!

On February 6, Joe Adams of Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama will host a 1 hour skills based webinar from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm EST on digital mapping. Stay tuned for more information.
