SCARC | South Carolina Association of Regional Councils

Board of Directors

People are always at the core of every COG program. Throughout the state, more than 1,200 citizens are actively involved n volunteering with COG-related work. This includes 342 South Carolinians who serve on the Boards of Directors of the ten COGs. Of that number, 245 – or 72% — are elected officials; 210 are county or municipal officials; 35 are members of the South Carolina General Assembly. More than 900 state residents are involved with COG committees or affiliated entities.

In addition to the local Boards of Directors who govern the individual COGs, the South Carolina Association of Regional Councils also has a separate Board of Directors composed of local COG Board members.
