Board of Directors 

The SMCOG Board of Directors consist of representatives from each member city, government officials, key partners, and stakeholders from all across Southwest Missouri. 

The SMCOG Board of Directors is made up of one representative from each member city and county along with non-government members that represent key partners and stakeholders. Governmental Board members serve a term of two years, and non-governmental board members are selected by a nominating committee and appointed annually by the Governmental members. State Representatives and State Senators of the SMCOG region serve as ex-officio, nonvoting members of the Board.


The SMCOG Executive Committee is composed of the Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary/Treasurer, the Immediate Past Chair, and at least two but not more than four additional members of the Council who may be government or non-government representatives, that the majority of the Executive Committee shall be government representatives. The Executive Committee is elected annually by the SMCOG Board of Directors.
