Exec Board

The Executive Board, is SEAGO's Board of Directors, which is responsible for formulation of policy for the Organization, adoption of a budget, establishment of fees and/or assessments, approving, rejecting or deferring action on any SEAGO business, and the employment and dismissal of an Executive Director. The Executive Board is comprised of one elected official from each of the 19 local government entities: Cochise County, Benson, Bisbee, Douglas, Huachuca City, Sierra Vista, Tombstone, Willcox, Graham County, Pima, Safford,Thatcher, Greenlee County, Clifton, Duncan, Santa Cruz County, Nogales, Patagonia, and the San Carlos Apache Tribe. The Board also contains five private sector representatives. There is one private sector representative from Graham, Greenlee and Santa Cruz Counties, but because the population of Cochise County exceeds 100,000 it is allowed two private sector representatives on the Executive Board. 

Admin Council

The Administrative Council is comprised of one appointed official from each of the 19 local government entities listed above. Each entity's representative on the Administrative Council is the city, town or county manager, city or town clerk, or their delegate. The Administrative Council meets two weeks before each regular meeting of the Executive Board and makes recommendations on all business to be considered by the Board.

Joint Exec/Admin

The Administrative Committee (comprised of the officers of the Administrative Council) and the Executive Committee (comprised of the officers of the Executive Board), are empowered under the current SEAGO Bylaws to conduct program related, time sensitive business that must be accomplished in between regular meetings of the full Administrative Council and Executive Board. The Administrative Council and Executive Board meet only four times per year. Calling special meetings of the entire Administrative Council (with 19 members) and Executive Board (with 24 members) to conduct business in between regular meetings is extremely difficult, even when several months' notice is provided. As a result, the Bylaws were amended to form the Committees in order to reduce quorum requirements so that business that could not wait until the next regular meeting could be conducted. The Administrative and Executive Committees typically hold four meetings over each calendar year.

ACOA

The Advisory Council on Aging (ACOA) serves as a forum to allow the elderly of Planning District VI to identify the principal problems confronting them and to determine practical solutions to such problems. Every Area Agency on Aging is required by the Older Americans Act, as amended, to have an advisory council. The members of the ACOA are appointed by the SEAGO Executive Board.

TAC
SEAGO’s Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) is made up of one representative from each community and county within the region, as well as a voting ADOT representative, and the District Engineers from the Tucson and the Safford Districts. This committee discusses regional information and needs, suggests and then approves projects for the Transportation Improvement Program, as well as other important transportation needs throughout the region.


All activities requiring TAC approval must be brought before the TAC, then once approved, it is presented to SEAGO’s Administrative Council and Executive Board for approval. Once this is done, the project is then added to the SEAGO TIP and then on to the State Transportation Board for approval to the STIP (link is external). Once a project is approved, funding is scheduled according to the five year construction plan.
