Who we Are

CAPCOG consists of more than 90 member governments and organizations that represent the people of its 10-county region — Bastrop, Blanco, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Hays, Lee, Llano, Travis, and Williamson counties. Formed in 1970, it is one of 24 councils of governments in the state of Texas that serves those same communities as an advocate, planner and coordinator of regionalism.

CAPCOG is governed by local elected officials through its General Assembly and Executive Committee. A number of policy and advisory committees assist CAPCOG and its Executive Committee in taking beneficial actions for all in the region.
