COG Board Priorities

The Board of Directors is the Council of Governments’ governing body and is responsible for its overall policies. In recent years, the board has focused on regional infrastructure, economic competitiveness, and the Metrorail system.

Strengthening COG’s relationship with state and federal legislators is also a priority for the Board of Directors. COG and the region have benefited from a close relationship with its Congressional delegation, particularly in areas like Chesapeake Bay restoration, homeland security, and funding for Metro. COG is active in inviting members of Congress to make presentations to the board either on proposed legislation of regional significance or opportunities for federal-regional collaboration.

COG engages a range of federal agencies to advance the region’s legislative priorities and is continually identifying opportunities for collaboration. Many COG Board members hold significant leadership positions with key state and national associations and COG is focused on better leveraging these connections.
