Council Officers' Coordination Team

The Council Officers' Coordination Team (COCT) oversees collaborative work teams commissioned by the governance councils. The team will assess and assign new work for consideration by a particular council and ensure that work is not being addressed by multiple councils at once. An annual planning retreat will be scheduled by this team for all members of the three governance councils, where new members are trained, revisions to the new governance system are determined and the agenda for the year is planned.

The COCT is comprised of the Officers' of each of the Governance Councils.
