Capital Region Connections

The Council of Governments is all about connections. As metropolitan Washington's go-to, forward looking organization, we bring leaders and stakeholders together to tackle the region’s biggest shared challenges. As a hub of information, we provide authoritative data, expert analysis, strategies and plans to help decision-makers collaborate regionally while supporting local needs and priorities.

Capital Region Connections is COG's new e-newsletter. Connections covers recent action by the COG Board and initiatives by our other boards and committees. It highlights reports, upcoming events, local media coverage, and social media. Connections also features news on COG's 22 member governments and Q&A’s with area leaders to describe their work and how COG helps them achieve their goals.
