PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Less than two months after taking office, Gov. Gina Raimondo is headed to Washington, D.C., to attend a National Governors Association conference, White House meetings and dinner with President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.

Her office said in a statement her participation in the weekend conference sessions is an “important opportunity” to meet with other governors and officials from across the United States to discuss policy prescriptions.

Raimondo also will meet with Obama administration officials about how Rhode Island can tap federal resources to boost economic development.
