Welcome from the Executive Director

Thank you for visiting the website of the Appalachian Council of Governments. Fundamentally, our purpose is to improve the lives of the people of the SC Appalachian region. While that purpose has many facets, including strengthening local governments, enhancing infrastructure, training workers, providing services to the elderly, supporting economic development, and bringing key players together for the betterment of the region, it all comes back to that same fundamental purpose.

If you have an interest in our region, we want to be a resource to you. As you browse our site, I hope you will find the information or specific contact person to best meet your needs. If you are unable to find what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us by e-mail at info@scacog.org or to call our general number at (864) 242-9733 and we will direct you to the best person to provide the resources you are seeking. You can also feel free to contact me directly at pelissier@scacog.org .

Steve Pelissier
