The Missouri Eclipse Task Force has divided Missouri into regions with leaders assigned to each region so that each area is appropriately represented within the state-wide task force. 

State-wide meetings are held on a regular basis to coordinate state-wide issues, and regional meetings are planned to focus on regional needs.
