    Workforce Crisis

    As the market continues to improve and construction in all or most segments increases, the pool of talent who do the actual construction, renovation, and repair work dwindles - both in quantity and quality - particularly in trades that demand years of training and hands-on experience.  Without improved recruiting, training, and retention, we almost certainly face a decrease in quality of work, increased costs, increased safety issues, and other concerns.

    Fall Conference Registration is Open!

    Registration for the 2015 Fall Owners Leadership Conference - Nov. 4 - 6 is open!   Join us in Henderson, NV (Las Vegas) for another quality COAA conference.  

    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 13 topics!) that is critical to the successful Project Manager.

    Owner and Contractors Protective (OCP) policy worth investigating.

    With a number of states limiting the coverage of an additional insured and limiting the breadth of indemnification clauses in construction contracts, a particular type of policy known as “Owner and Contractors Protective” (OCP) may be worth a look in evaluating that policy as a part of the overall risk management strategy.
