COG's official blog is The Yardstick on RegionForward.org. The blog takes its name from our focus on measuring progress toward the goals in Region Forward, a vision for a more accessible, sustainable, prosperous, and livable region. It aims to keep the conversation about the region's challenges and goals fresh with regular posts on the news, relevant topics, and blogs by guest officials and experts.
COG maintains a Vimeo page where it posts videos from some events as well as media stories featuring COG officials and staff.
Before COG began blogging and posting on social media, podcasts were a way for COG members and staff to connect with the public on a variety of topics important to the National Capital Region. Click below for archived podcasts.
