Inside the e.Republic headquarters building in Folsom, CA

Established in 1984, e.Republic is the nation’s only media and research company focused exclusively on state and local government and education. Led by Dennis McKenna, media entrepreneur and co-founder, our award-winning publications, websites, more than 150 annual events and highly respected research operations are acknowledged as setting the gold standard in their respective fields. Our work has also been cited in numerous publications, including The New York Times, Forbes, Time Magazine, The Washington Post and USA Today.

In 1985, McKenna launched California County magazine in partnership with the California State Association of Counties. In 1987, as one of the first to recognize the impact new digital technologies would have on the public sector, Dennis launched Government Technology, the first national magazine covering information technology in state and local government. Other successful media platforms followed, including the Center for Digital Education, Public CIO and Emergency Management. All have won numerous editorial and design awards—On July 26, 2013, Emergency Management Magazine was named Magazine of the Year for overall excellence by ASBPE (American Society of Business Publication Editors), Public CIO was named "Magazine of the Year" in 2006 and Government Technology and Emergency Management were named as best publications in their respective categories at the 2011 and 2012 Western Publishing Association’s Maggie awards.

Seeing the need for stronger analysis and research to support public sector innovation, Dennis developed the Center for Digital Government—the first-of-its-kind research and business intelligence advisory institute focused exclusively on state and local government. The Center is home to the widely cited Digital States Survey.

In 2009, e.Republic acquired Governing from Congressional Quarterly. Governing covers politics, policy and management for state and local government leaders. Recognized as the most credible and authoritative voice in its field, Governing provides non-partisan news, insight and analysis on budget and finance; transportation and infrastructure; workforce and economic development; health and human services and more. Since the acquisition, the publication has grown, with an expanded online presence and with the launch of the Governing Institute, headed by former Kansas City Mayor Mark Funkhouser. Governing also greatly expanded its national events portfolio. In 2011 Governing received the prestigious Jesse H. Neal Award from American Business Media for exceptional editorial content.

e.Republic is a unique company with more than 25 years of experience serving our clients and government audience. We continue to grow through economic and market challenges and have had steady increases in revenue.

We are redefining the role of media in this digital age.

Our vision is to double our business in the next five years by doing what we’ve done all along—help state and local governments improve the way they work.

We all want our jobs to matter, and at e.Republic, we are proud to be able to "do well by doing good," earning the respect of our readers and our clients.

Our mission to help public sector leaders be smarter and better informed has never been more relevant.
