Texoma Council of Governments: TCOG Economic Impact Statement FYE2011

Posted on: October 4th, 2012 by Kate Humphrey

NADO’s 2012 Innovation Awards recognized 64 projects from 22 states for their creative approaches to regional community and economic development, including the project described below. Click here for the full list of winners.

The Texoma Council of Governments (TCOG) Economic Impact Statement aims to measure and communicate the return on investment for jurisdictions that are served by TCOG. TCOG presents the impact of all of its programs, projects, and activities on the regional economy, including the spin-off effects that result from direct expenditures. After developing a custom economic impact model with the help of a consultant, TCOG staff designed an infographic for public release and consumption. In a time of decreasing budgets and revenues, this project allows TCOG to clearly express the value that regionalism plays in local economies. In future years, TCOG plans to add an analysis of the actual return on investment of each dollar spent in membership dues in an effort to further strengthen membership and partnership commitments.
