Policy & Political Engagement
In an election year, COGA’s role is to connect members with candidates and information and to be the public voice for industry. In years outside of the election cycle, COGA maintains efforts to build relationships with elected officials and key stakeholders to ensure continuity and ongoing policy education. COGA's efforts include:
- Industry Voice: COGA provides a reasoned and informed voice to media, the public, industry, and allies during the legislative session on political and policy issues on behalf of oil and natural gas. COGA works to uphold accountability within the oil and natural gas industry and with media by providing resources and data to ensure accuracy in coverage of oil and natural gas issues.
- Colorado’s Energy Future: COGA continues bipartisan energy education efforts to assist legislators on important energy policies, emerging technologies, and business practices, as well as build trust and transparency on both sides of the aisle regarding key issues.
- Employee Engagement: COGA works to maintain workforce engagement and awareness which will include educational communication and seminars on policy issues, as well as coordinating member participation at legislative, regulatory, and local government hearings.
