Regional Council

The Regional Council is SCAG’s 86-member governing board. Membership is comprised of local elected officials representing the six counties and 191 cities within the SCAG jurisdiction, including elected representatives from 67 Districts, each consisting of one or more cities in the region with approximately equal population and geographic continuity; an elected representative from each of the six counties within the region; and representatives of the County Transportation Commissions and tribal governments located within the region.

The Regional Council has general authority to conduct the affairs of SCAG, and implements the policy direction provided at the annual General Assembly of the membership. In addition, the Regional Council acts upon policy recommendations from SCAG policy committees and external agencies; appoints committees to study specific problems and programs; amends, decreases or increases the proposed budget to be reported to the General Assembly; and directs the actions of the agency throughout the year.

Overview

General Assembly

At least once every year (usually in April or May), SCAG convenes the General Assembly to bring together the official representatives of SCAG’s membership and help set the agency’s course for the coming year.

The General Assembly is a forum where policy matters can be identified and addressed. Any city or county representative may propose a subject for study by the Association, provided that the representative has notified the President of the proposal 45 days in advance of the General Assembly meeting. Such a proposal should be submitted in the form of a resolution to the SCAG Regional Council.
