The ECC provides the organizational mechanism for local elected officials to meet and deal with region-wide issues. By joining together, local governments create a valuable instrument for crossing political jurisdictions (because problems do) and a system for cooperation and coordination, now a requirement of most funding agencies. The concept also makes possible a single overall group of leaders for coordinating plans, programs and projects to deal with common problems and challenges and achieve mutual goals and objectives.
