Valley Coordination
COG Planning Directors' Committee
The directors' committee is comprised of the eight executive directors of each of the MPOs / RTPAs in the San Joaquin Valley. This includes the Stanislaus Council of Governments, Council of Fresno County Governments, Kern Council of Governments, Kings County Association of Governments, Madera County Transportation Commission, Merced County Association of Governments, San Joaquin Council of Governments, and Tulare County Association of Governments.

The directors' committee provides a forum for the executive directors of the eight valley MPOs / RTPAs to discuss and collaborate on issues of regional importance, and that impact the entire region such as transportation, air quality, and advocacy efforts. The directors' committee works on the staff level at building consensus between the eight MPOs on items that, when implemented by individual Regional Planning Agencies, results in a single vision for the entire San Joaquin Valley.

Directors' committee meetings are held regularly in alternating locations in the valley. These meetings are open to the public and there is an opportunity on every agenda for the public to offer comments.

Regional Policy Council
This sixteen-member Regional Policy Council was established to discuss and build regional consensus on issues of valley importance. The council consists of two elected officials and one alternate appointed from each of the regional planning agencies’ policy boards. The council is positioned to have a unique and potentially pivotal position in further Valley collaborative efforts and improving the quality of life for all valley residents.

The policy council provides guidance on common inter-regional policy issues and also represents the San Joaquin Valley at public forms such as the California Transportation Commission, the governor and his administration, as well as state and federal legislative bodies that require a common voice from the San Joaquin Valley.
