Rogers retiring from Whatcom Council of Governments

The Whatcom Council of Governments honored longtime deputy executive director Gordon Rogers by naming its board room in his honor.

Rogers is retiring in February; he joined WCOG in 1994. 

“Gordon has been such a key player in transportation planning in Whatcom County over the past 20 years that the Full Council (WCOG’s board of directors) felt strongly that his contributions needed to be recognized,” said WCOG Executive Director Bob Wilson in a news release.

The resolution establishing the “Gordon W. Rogers Conference Room” cited Rogers’ accomplishments at WCOG, including directing the regional transportation planning program and in developing the International Mobility and Trade Corridor Program.

Rogers plans on staying in Whatcom County and will continue pursuing his interests, which include spending time with his family, serving as chairman of the Whatcom County Parks Commission and restoring classic cars.
