We appreciate your support and participation!


Up your project leadership game by joining COAA.
Sharpen your saw even further by helping lead the COAA-CA chapter.

The value of COAA membership is off-the-charts high. An entire Owner organization can join for $1,000/year. For an organization with 25 staff in the planning/design/construction department, that means a cost of only $40/person. Beyond the tangible benefits – especially for Emerging Pros (age 35 or younger) – membership also opens the door to engagement and volunteer opportunities. Give back to the industry, network with like-minded and motivated peers, direct the future of the organization, and build your resume.

The ball is in your court! If you are interested in learning more about COAA membership and/or volunteer opportunities, contact Jill McKenzie at


COAA members and/or sponsors of the COAA-CA chapter have some things on their mind and offer those thoughts here as an aid to Owners and other project stakeholders.  Enjoy!
