The BGA has new leadership with the recent selection of David Greising, formerly of Reuters and the Chicago Tribune, as its President and CEO.

Proceeds from the event will help support the BGA at a critical juncture in its history and in the health and sustainability of non-profit journalism.

Better Government Association

The Better Government Association (BGA) is one of the nation’s oldest nonpartisan, nonprofit investigative journalism and civic advocacy organizations. Founded in 1923, the BGA has devoted close to a century to promoting transparency, efficiency, and accountability in government in Chicago and across Illinois.

Today, the BGA continues to provide the public with trustworthy, unbiased information about its government and elected representatives. With three autonomous program areas—Investigations, Policy, and Civic Engagement—our team uncovers waste and wrongdoing in government, holds elected officials accountable, litigates for open records and meetings, advocates for good government, and empowers citizens to engage and act. In the wake of the catastrophic collapse of the local news industry and, more recently, the barrage of criticism aimed at undermining the credibility and effectiveness of the mainstream media, the work of the BGA is essential to holding our elected officials, government agencies, and those that seek to represent us accountable. The health and sustainability of the Fourth Estate is more important than ever to protecting our democracy.
