The High Ground of Texas is a marketing coalition made up of over 75 members with economic development interests in the region. Developed in 1988, the High Ground represents cities, counties and organizations in the West Texas region. The main purpose of the High Ground is to create jobs and increase the tax base of the region. We continue to have a strong presence on the regional, state, and national level with an emphasis on marketing the region to prospective new industries, networking, economic development, education, and providing a common voice on issues that affect the region.
The organization is membership-based and is supported by a 15 person board. The board is made up of Foundation Members, COG representatives and eight at-large members from around the region.
