CAPCOG General Assembly names the agency’s 2014 Executive Committee

Monday, December 16, 2013

The Capital Area Council of Governments' General Assembly has selected the organization's 2014 Executive Committee, approving the full slate recommended by the Nominating Committee. 

As CAPCOG's governing body, the 27-member Executive Committee comprises city and county elected officials nominated and selected annually to provide direction to CAPCOG staff regarding program implementation, budgets and contracts, and general policies and procedures for managing the agency.

The committee also includes nonvoting seats for state legislators from Texas Planning Region 12.

Executive Committee members are self-nominated from the pool of current General Assembly participants. Though eligibility requirements help ensure equal representation of cities, counties, small communities and large areas, selection also considers geographical representation and candidates' involvement with other CAPCOG programs and committees.
