The seminar is held after every election by the National Governors Association. This year's event is scheduled Nov. 20-22 in Las Vegas.
Gibbons stated that he attended a similar seminar after his election in 2006 and found it to be "an invaluable experience."
Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell, who chairs the NGA, said the seminars allow veteran governors "to share their experiences with their new colleagues — from setting up their offices to writing their budget."
Some of Gibbons' experiences could prompt some of the governors-elect to think twice about their new roles.
Nearing the halfway mark in his first term, Gibbons already has been forced to approve a long list of budget cuts to cope with a projected revenue shortfall of nearly $1.2 billion by the end of this fiscal year.
The governor, adamantly opposed to new or higher taxes, is considering major budget reductions in the next two-year budget cycle, which starts in July 2009, because of fears of another huge revenue shortfall in that period.
Gibbons also filed for divorce in May, citing incompatibility. First lady Dawn Gibbons moved out of the governor's mansion and into a guest house on the mansion grounds, and Gibbons is pursuing a court order that would get her off the property.
Dawn Gibbons also has claimed that the governor has been involved with another woman. Gibbons has denied having any romantic involvements with other women.
The Republican governor also faces a claim filed with the state Ethics Commission by a state Democratic Party official that he got an unwarranted property tax break on land he owns in eastern Nevada. However, a commission investigator said there's no evidence to support the claim.
Late in his 2006 campaign for governor, Gibbons faced accusations from a woman who had joined him and others for drinks in Las Vegas that he later tried to coerce her into having sex. Las Vegas police investigated the claims and declined to file any charges.
Gibbons also remains the subject of a federal probe into whether he accepted money and a cruise from a wealthy defense contractor, Warren Trepp, in exchange for his help while in Congress in acquiring contracts for Trepp.
The Gibbonses had to take out a line of credit on their paid-off Reno home to pay for some of the legal costs incurred as a result of some of the controversies.
