Gov.-elect Larry Hogan will fly to Colorado Friday for a weekend seminar held by the National Governors Association for incoming state chief executives.
According to Hogan's transition office, Hogan will attend sessions on such topics as assembling a cabinet, recruiting, preparing a budget.
Hogan spokeswoman Hannah Marr said Hogan will return from the conference in Westminster, Colo., Sunday.
Marr said the seminar in a nonpartisan event at which incumbent governors share their experience with their just-elected colleagues. The Republican Hogan defeated Democratic Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown last week in what was regarded as one of the nation's bigger upsets.
Marr said the incumbent governors who will be conducting session include Colorado's John Hickenlooper, Utah's Gary Herbert, Connecticutt's Dan Malloy, Montana's Steve Bullock and Missouri's Jay Nixon. All are Democrats except Herbert.
Hogan's trip will follow a round of meetings with top Annapolis Democrats. Marr said Hogan met with House Speaker Michael E. Busch Thursday -- a day after meeting with Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and Comptroller Peter Franchot.
