Construction Owners Association of America - National Conference - Tampa Florida 11/17-19 ~ It's all about the #BIM

I woke up at 5am to catch a 7am flight to Tampa for the COAA Conference.  No, COAA does not stand for Change Order Association of America.  We'll save that one for the AIA.  Take a look at the agenda and it's all about BIM, BIM, BIM.  I'll keep you posted on all of the classes.  I'm so glad I joined and am  their newest sponsor.  Oops. Time to turn off the laptop.  Plane is leaving.  See ya there.

Student Day
Thursday, November 18 has been designated Student Day.  COAA believes that exposing students to COAA conferences and other membership programming will not only help direct their future plans, but will benefit the industry as a whole. 

Full-time students (9 credit hours or more per semester) studying in the field of construction, e.g. design, project management, engineering, etc., are invited to attend the conference at the reduced rate of $100 for Thursday or $175 for both Thursday and Friday. 

Interested students should contact COAA HQ at 800-994-2622 or coaa@coaa.org for more information and to receive a student registration form.
