Local Branch of the Year
Share |

The Commissioned Officers Association (COA) Board of Directors recognizes the exceptional accomplishments of our Local Branches. Each year, a Large Local Branch (more than 60 members) and a Small Local Branch (fewer than 60 members) are recognized with Branch of the Year awards. The Board may elect not to make an award in any given year.

Call for Nominations

Nominations are due by December 31. Submit nominations online via SurveyMonkey.

In making its decision, the Board considers the following factors:

  • Percentage of officers in the local area who are COA members
  • Frequency of Branch meetings
  • Degree of participation and scope of topics presented at general meetings of the Branch
  • Positive and/or negative feedback on Branch activities received by the national COA office
  • Responsiveness of Branch officers’ members to requests for information, administrative documentation, proxy selection, etc. as requested by the national COA office
