Colorado Outfitters Association (COA) is a professional
association of licensed outfitters. Following is some
information about membership in our association:
1. The COA gives an individual outfitter a collective
voice with State Legislators as well as agencies such
as the Division of Wildlife, Forest Service, and Bureau
of Land Management.
2. The cost to join the COA is $250.00. This fee is
minimal compared to the benefits an outfitter receives.
Annual membership to the Northwest Chapter of the COA
is $75.00 for outfitter membership, and $25.00 for guide
3. The COA functions via a Board of Directors, which
is in place to represent all outfitter members. The
Board acts according to the majority of the membership,
not just a few self-serving interests. The COA also
functions with the help of active committees chaired
by numerous involved outfitter members.
4. The COA employs an Executive Director who attends
Trade Shows, meetings and various other related endeavors
to represent outfitters.This time consuming job reaps
tremendous benefits for outfitter members. Few outfitters
have the time to attend meetings to testify or make
comments. Through an Executive Director, outfitter members
will always be represented.
5. The COA works diligently to keep outfitter members
informed of critical issues facing the industry. This
is done primarily through an interactive website where
"members only" information is posted on a
regular basis. The website also includes contacts and
inquiries looking for outfitter services. The COA also
publishes a quarterly newsletter to keep outfitter members
updated with current information.
An association is only as good as its membership, and
can only be as effective as its membership allows. Join
us and become a part of the decision making voice for
the outfitting industry.
