LGW members are the most connected and engaged leaders in our region. They represent a diverse community of influencers who build life-long, powerful relationships through the LGW platform. While each member contributes to the region in their own significant way, all share a common passion for changing their community for the better. 



How to Become A Member

Membership begins with the successful completion of the Signature Program. While membership in LGW is a lifelong experience, Active (dues-paying) members receive benefits throughout the year (July 1 – June 30). These include special pricing and access to LGW-sponsored regional dialogues, workshops and networking events. Members also stay engaged by participating on various LGW committees, joining the Board of Directors or sponsoring LGW programs and events. Renew your membership today!

LGW members include more than 1,900 senior-level leaders representing a cross section of the government, nonprofit and corporate sectors from the District, Maryland and Virginia.
