NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The National Governors Association has decided to hold the group's annual meeting in Nashville in 2014.
It will be the third time the meeting is held in Tennessee, after previous events in Gatlinburg in 1951 and Nashville in 1984.
The NGA said in a release that its nine-governor executive committee selected Nashville for its accommodations, venue options and "overall appeal."
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam in the release praised the selection of Nashville and said he looks forward to showcasing Music City's offerings.
The nonpartisan association was founded in 1908 as a way to represent a collective voice of governors to Washington. Members include the governors of 55 states, territories and commonwealths.
Milwaukee hosts the association's next meeting in August 2013.
