CSG National Office

Our National Office is located in vibrant Lexington, KY.  You may find career opportunities in policy, communications, finance, IT, Human Resources and more. 

CSG Regional Offices

In linking governments together, The Council of State Governments not only has a National office, but we also are the only national state services organization to staff offices in four regions. This unique regional focus dates to the 1940s when most of the regional offices were established. Today each CSG regional office staffs policy committees and meetings, convenings of state leaders, conducts research and distributes relevant information to their region states. Our regional offices are located in Atlanta, GA, Chicago, IL, Sacramento, CA and New York, NY.
