One of TJCOG's most critical roles is that of a convener and mediator of local governments and partner organizations in our region working to improve coordinated planning, share resources, and learn from one another. TJCOG's Regional Partnerships are created when there is a long-standing and ongoing need for coordination that extends beyond one meeting or project. Through these partnerships, TJCOG is able to routinely bring together stakeholders impacted by a topic or challenge and ensure communication continues across organizations.
