Gov. Janet Mills is inviting fellow governors to convene this summer in Maine.

Mills was participating Friday in the National Governors Association’s winter meeting in Washington. It runs through Monday.

At the meeting, Mills will be issuing a formal invitation to governors to come to Portland in July for a summer meeting.

Maine rejoined the association after her predecessor, Republican Paul LePage, pulled out of the group. The organization convenes governors to meet with peers and policy experts.
