Education

COAA’s primary mission is to educate, inform, and equip Owners … to help them become better Owners and deliver better projects.  In-person or virtual events are the primary means of accomplishing these goals – national conferences, Owner Training Institute (OTI) courses, webinars, and chapter workshops.

COAA members also deepen their knowledge with the 24/7 eForum, the digital Owners Perspective magazine, and the eCatalog repository.

COAA volunteers play an enormous role in delivering knowledge to Owners, serving as OTI instructors; members of the Education Committee, Conference Committee, and OTI Advisory Group; and leaders of COAA chapters, helping plan and execute workshops.
