To effectively fulfill our vision of shared responsibility, the CGA seeks input and participation from the broadest possible representation of stakeholders.
Each CGA committee was established to support the CGA mission in a unique and critical manner. Since the CGA's inception, the working committees have achieved multiple goals set forth during the "common ground study." From the development of a national damage database to the kick-off of the national 811 campaign, the CGA working committees carry out the work of the CGA, and have been recognized by industry and government representatives for their achievements.
In promoting a spirit of shared responsibility, the CGA welcomes all stakeholders who would like to be a part of the advancement of CGA ‘s programs. Any best practice or program endorsed by the CGA comes with consensus support from experts representing the following stakeholder groups: excavators, locators, road builders, electric, telecommunications, oil, gas distribution, gas transmission, railroad, one call, public works, equipment manufacturing, state regulators, insurance, emergency services and engineering/design.
