These are some of the things our members are saying about the advantages of a regional organization:
- NWCCOG provides services to its members that are more cost-effective and efficient when executed on a regional basis, rather than being duplicated by each member jurisdiction.
- NWCCOG provides the “critical mass” necessary to take advantage of various federal programs.
- NWCCOG provides strength to individual member jurisdictions by speaking with a unified voice on regional issues.
- NWCCOG provides a regional perspective to local, state, and federal policy makers.
