Executive Committee

The 16-member Executive Committee, ATCOG’s governing body, largely comprises city and county elected officials nominated and selected to provide direction to ATCOG on program implementation, budgets, contracts and general policies and procedures for managing the agency. Please refer to our ATCOG ByLaws for further information. The governing body of the Ark-Tex Council of Governments is the Board of Directors, composed of members elected or appointed by the membership. The Executive Committee is empowered to conduct the affairs of the ATCOG Board of Directors, between quarterly meetings of the Board. Changes in policy require the approval of the full Board of Directors at its quarterly meetings.
