the leading voice for regional collaboration in central oklahoma

The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) was created in 1966 by local governments to lead regional collaboration in Central Oklahoma.

Our organization is a voluntary, non-partisan association of local governments that includes 37 cities and the 4 counties (Canadian, Cleveland, Logan and Oklahoma) in the Central Oklahoma region. ACOG both complements and supplements local government activities but is not, in itself, a governmental unit.

The general purpose of ACOG is to encourage and facilitate local governments in the region to cooperate with one another, with other levels of government, and with the private sector to plan development of the region, and thereby improve the health, safety, and general welfare of Central Oklahoma citizens.

THE ACOG REGION

Who We Serve

The ACOG region consists of 37 cities and 4 counties in Central Oklahoma.  Our diverse stakeholders include rural and urban constituents; elected and appointed officials; community, nonprofit and private sector leaders.  ACOG is governed by a 37 Board of Directors that includes Mayors, City Councilmembers and County Commissioners from Canadian, Cleveland, Logan and Oklahoma Counties.
