Chapter Leadership Committee

Chapter Leaders

An organization's success relies on its grassroots. COAA's chapters form its local touchstones in the United States. COAA's chapters have served as boosters for COAA training, sites for OTI courses, providers for scholarships to COAA offerings, and incubators for its future leaders. As COAA constantly evolves and sets higher standards for the construction industry, so have COAA Chapters.
