Annual Advisory Committee Retreats
Every September, the HCCOG Executive Director and Advisory Committee Members gather together to discuss pertinent topics affecting our local membership and the COG. The weekend is an intensive meeting focused on legislative impacts, current trends and initiatives, and strategic planning. Multiple presenters come in to share information having the largest impact on our membership and area stakeholders.
