The SGVCOG is governed by a 34-member Governing Board that dictates policy for the agency. The By-laws also provide for the creation of policy committees and technical advisory committees that develop additional analysis and recommendations to the Governing Board.
There are currently five policy committees, including Capital Projects and Construction Committee, Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources (EENR) Committee, Homelessness Committee, Transportation Committee, and Water Committee. There are also four technical advisory committees (TACs), including City Managers' Steering Committee, Planning Directors' TAC, Public Works TAC, and Water TAC.
Additionally, the Executive Committee provides guidance on matters being considered on Governing Board agendas and any other matters directed by the Governing Board.
