Welcome to the Kent Governance Association

The Kent Governance Association (KGA) is the association of school governing bodies in the Kent geographical area with over 5000 members, here to support and represent school governors a both a primary and secondary level.

KGA membership is free and automatic for any school governors, trustees and similar school governance volunteers together with clerks in a governing board within Kent, whether Maintained school, Academy or with another designation.

Individuals are able to access the resources of the KGA through our main website.

The KGA host regular county wide assemblies bringing governors and trustees from across the county together for briefings as well as local District Briefings in each of the eight Kent districts. The forum enables governors to share information, concerns and questions. All members of KGA are welcome to attend, free of charge, but we ask that you book in using CPD Online so that sufficient refreshments can be provided.

Dates and venues for future meetings as well as minutes from previous meetings can be found on our main website.

The KGA Executive

The KGA Executive meets three times a year. Its members represent each of the Kent County Council (KCC) districts and they attend the District Governor Briefings to gather concerns, opinions and queries and feedback information from the KGA. The Executive meetings are regularly attended by governor support and other KCC officers, which enables members to influence decision making with regard to the services provided for both our governing bodies and schools.
