Vision Statement

Susan B. Thomas, PhD

Improving quality of life is in TCOG’s organizational DNA. It is what we do, our mission. It is who we are, our purpose.

Susan B. Thomas, Executive Director

We believe that by being better leaders, by training better leaders, and by supporting better leaders, we will build better lives. Better Leaders Building Better Lives is our vision to build quality of life in a more meaningful and more sustainable way for all Texomans. It is our game plan for bringing additional resources to our region; for growing our organization and expanding our services and programs; for making life better for more people. This effort is essential, as growth and progress in Texoma will ultimately be measured by the quality of life we offer.

Our vision will make TCOG a regional center of excellence, a model organization that sets the bar for performance for COGs across the country. Because of our leadership and high performance, TCOG will be an incubator for new state and federal development programs. We will pilot new projects that will teach other organizations how to implement policy and programs in a more efficient and effective way, so that each dollar spent generates an even higher quality of life for the citizens of our region.

As the subject matter experts and policy leaders for each program we deliver, TCOG will be able to secure abundant and sustainable resources for our tri-county area, enabling us to touch more lives and help more people.

Building quality of life requires leaders: inspired leaders who can see a bigger vision; committed leaders who believe the vision will be achieved; and courageous leaders who endure challenges, overcome obstacles, and transform the vision into reality. TCOG is dedicated to building quality of life through inspired, committed, and courageous leadership. If your organization is a partner in the quest to improve quality of life, we invite you to join us in being Better Leaders Building Better Lives.
