Connecting Attendees with Rewarding Experience & Service
COAA Cares was created in early 2020 on the heels of a wildly successful event during COAA’s fall (2019) conference in Atlanta. Conference attendees constructed wooden rocking chairs for children in support of CHRIS 180, an Atlanta organization that seeks to “provide children, adults, and families with high-quality, trauma-informed behavioral health services and support systems.”
The popularity of this – and the broader sense that COAA and its events ought to incorporate similar “give back” activities – led to the creation of COAA Cares.
COAA Cares aspires to:
- Provide rewarding, fun, and well-organized opportunities for its members and stakeholders to “give back” via tangible, hands-on activities at COAA events
- Support and raise awareness of charitable organizations within the AEC industry
- Develop a legacy of meaningful interaction that inspires COAA members to engage and become involved within their own community
- Increase COAA’s visibility and footprint by cultivating long-term relationships with such organizations
