COGA Chapters in Colorado

COGA chapters provide an expanded statewide presence for the industry and the Association. Activities include hosting fundraisers and making contributions to local civic and charitable causes, working in and with local schools, assisting at community functions and providing scholarships.
With a membership of local industry employees, each chapter operates independently, but under the authority and direction of the COGA Board of Directors. Chapters have their own membership, steering committees, and officers. Chapter presidents serve as COGA board members.
