Governing Board

The 12-member Governing Board is made up of elected officials and appointed leaders who represent the Wasatch Front region’s five counties and unique geography.

Strategy Committee

The 25-member Strategy Committee is made up of the 12-member Governing Board and 13 additional members from the private sector. The Strategy Committee guides the development of the region’s economic development strategy, known as the Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS).
