The Eastern Regional Conference of the Council of State Governments works to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information among the region's state policy makers, business leaders, and the academic community. Formerly in the Council's Southern Regional Conference, Maryland joined the Eastern Regional Conference in November 2009.

Members of the Eastern Regional Conference include eleven states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont; as well as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The five eastern Canadian provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island are international affiliate members of the Councilís Eastern Region.

The Conference provides staff for regional committees, task forces, and boards. Through these bodies, the Conference seeks to forge concensus on regional policies and priorities, and advocate federal policies and programs beneficial to the Eastern Region.
