COAA Celebrates 20 Years!
COAA was founded in 1994 by Albert E. Phillips - a lawyer and a visionary who was convinced that there was a need in the construction industry for a non-profit organization reflecting the voice of the Owner in the construction process. Join us for the Fall Owners Leadership Conference and 20th Anniversary Celebration in Nashville Nov. 19 - 21.
Top Ten Reasons...
There are a number of training opportunities out there for construction industry professionals, but none of them are geared to the Construction Project Owner ... until now. Visit COAA's Top Ten reasons Owners' Project Managers should choose COAA Owner Training Institute Courses as their one-stop shop on all training (choose from 14 topics!) that is critical to the successful Project Manager.
Spring Conference Presentations
COAA members who were not able to attend the Spring Owners Leadership Conference in Houston can find a copy of the presentations and the handouts in the Conference Section of the COAA website. Visit the Conference Archives to access presentations dating back to 2010. Members will need to log in with their user name and password to access.
