COAA Submission Guidelines

All presentations must be geared to the Construction Owner (the owner of the project). For the upcoming Conference, the Committee is particularly interested in sessions that address objective/goal setting, team selection, and executive engagement.
  • The deadline for submissions for the 2018 Fall Owners Leadership
  • Conference (La Jolla, CA, Nov 14-16) is Monday, July 16. All submissions received after July 16 will be considered for future conferences. The spring conference submission deadline is Friday, February 15.  
  • Presentations should be 1-hour in length with 50 minutes of content and 10 minutes of Q & A.
  • As COAA's educational programs are "Owners speaking to Owners" at least one Owner must share in delivering the presentation. 
  • While non-owners (Associates) are certainly welcome to submit and present topics, presentations may not promote products or services. 
  • PowerPoint Presentations presented at a COAA Conference will be pre-loaded on USB Drives and are due to COAA no later than 2 weeks prior to the start of the conference.  
  • Biographical information will be required about 2 months prior to the conference.
  • All speakers must sign COAA's standard Speaker Agreement.
  • Audio-visual equipment (LCD projector, screen, sound system, and laptop) will be provided. 
  • Please note: Speakers are responsible for their own registration, travel, and lodging costs.  

Owner Speaker Registration - $695 (Must be a Construction Project Owner)
