WHY JOIN COAA?
Owners and Developers stand alone in the complex, changing construction process, representing themselves in a major financial commitment. The management of the design and construction process requires knowledge of an industry whose technology evolves and changes continuously. It requires interfacing with all the groups involved in the construction process. Timing becomes critical to the Owner's bottom line. Changes and decision-making endlessly occur. Disputes and litigation may become an issue. It is critical for Owners to stay informed of the latest industry news, trends, and tools to help them successfully manage their facilities development and capital improvement projects.
The COAA membership year runs from January through December. Dues will be prorated for the year by join month.
