COG Board of Directors - Description

The Board of Directors is COG's governing body and is responsible for its overall policies, functions, and funds. Board members are appointed each year by the participating local governments and by caucuses of state legislative delegations from the region. Letters requesting appointments are sent to the heads of the legislative and executive branches. The current board consists of 34 members, four selected from the District of Columbia, three each from Fairfax, Montgomery and Prince George's counties, two from Loudoun and Prince William Counties, one from each of the remaining local jurisdictions, and one each from the Maryland and Virginia General Assemblies.

The meetings, which are usually two hours long, are held in the COG Board Room, 777 North Capitol Street, N.E., Suite 300, Washington, D.C. This Web site displays documents for upcoming and past meetings.  Items on the agenda are normally generated from COG's policy and technical committees. The Board takes action on committee recommendations, discusses current and emerging regional problems, and receives briefings on issues facing the region. Board meetings are open to the public, and representatives from the media frequently attend. The Board meets at noon on the second Wednesday of every month except August and December (unless necessary). To confirm meeting dates and time, contact Nicole Hange at (202) 962-3231 or e-mail to Nicole Hange.
