The Charity Commission has given NGA the go-ahead to change its name. The National Governors’ Association has officially become the National Governance Association after its members voted on it at their annual general meeting last November. The name change reflects the significant changes in school governance over the last decade. For example, those governing in some schools (academies) are trustees not governors. NGA also wanted to recognise the vital role of clerks and governance managers, many of whom are NGA members, regularly accessing the charity’s guidance, legal advice and training services.
