Our Values

When you work with us, you join a dedicated team that embraces a shared set of values every day.


We are a service-driven organization that leads with empathy, emotional intelligence, and a community-first mindset. We seek to understand and support each other, our partners, our clients, and other COGS across the state. This also means we act with openness and flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing demands of our work.

We embrace ethics and guardrails in our work. We do not make promises we cannot keep, and we take ownership of our work and its outcomes. We are planful, detail-oriented, and judicious, and we seek to ensure processes and procedures are in place to support a proactive approach to our work.

Transparent Communication

We lead with transparent communication in all that we do. We set clear expectations, share information at all levels of the organization, and ensure all staff are educated and trained. We maintain professionalism in all our communications.


TARCOG’s office is located in Huntsville, Alabama, named in 2022 as the best place to live in the country by U.S. News & World Report for its affordability and robust job market, especially in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields. And that’s just the heart of TARCOG’s five-county service area. There is undeniable energy all around as word spreads about all northeast Alabama can offer. Each of our member counties, Madison, Marshall, Limestone, Jackson, and DeKalb, has an affordable and unique lifestyle, housing, and recreation options. Of course, we’re proud of TARCOG’s part in creating this momentum, and we’re even more excited to keep it going. We’d love for more like-minded people to join us!
