Organizational Structure

General Assembly

The General Assembly is the governing body of MVCOG and meets four times a year. Each member jurisdiction chooses two delegates to represent the jurisdiction at the meetings. For most jurisdictions, the delegates include one elected and one appointed official. The General Assembly approves the MVCOG budget and assessment policy and addresses new business and issues affecting MVCOG. The General Assembly meetings rotate among the member jurisdictions.

Operations Committee

The Operations Committee, generally comprised of the chief administrative official from each jurisdiction, is an advisory body to the General Assembly. The Operations Committee meets on a quarterly basis to discuss issues, policies, procedures, and provides recommendations to the General Assembly.
