COG Board of Directors

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. The COG Board takes action on committee recommendations, discusses current and emerging regional problems, and receives briefings on issues facing the region.


The Board meets at noon on the second Wednesday of every month except August and December (unless necessary). Board meetings are open to the public, and representatives from the media frequently attend.


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.
