What We DoTMCN consists of regional member communities including any corporations, businesses, or associations who are interested in the development of programs and projects for the advancement of the Texas Midwest region. The region is defined as a core of West Central Texas counties which are contiguous to each other beginning with the founding county of Taylor. Currently community members are located within thirty-three contiguous counties.
Types of members include 1) Community Members represented by an individual appointed by the community to serve as the official local liaison and community delegate, and 2) Partners in the region representing corporations, businesses, associations, or individuals that support TMCN through an annual investment. Abilene and San Angelo serve as Hub Cities and work in partnership with TMCN to leverage their influence and resources to encourage community and economic growth in smaller communities across the region.
TMCN is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of 6 community representatives, 2 hub city representative, 3 at-large business partners and the TMCN Past President. The Board is responsible for selecting the Executive Director, establishing the meeting schedule for the year, and meeting annually to review TMCN goals with a defined Plan of Action for the upcoming year.
