Regional Partners Committee

Making a Local Impact

The Regional Partners Committee started in 2002, as a way to connect the national CGA mission of shared responsibility and partnership with groups of local stakeholders called Regional CGAs. Currently, there are more than 70 Regional Partners playing critical local roles in damage prevention in their respective geographic areas.

As the local ambassadors of the CGA mission, Regional CGAs have been instrumental in creating state-wide summits and conferences, giving stakeholders who are unable to attend the national CGA annual meeting an opportunity to learn new damage prevention skills.

CGA’s Regional Partners consistently use the CGA Communications Plan to inspire their safe digging outreach among professional excavators and the general public. But just as frequently, Regional Partners’ creative events and campaigns – like hosting skill competitions for locate technicians, creating scholarship programs for current and future diggers and arranging awareness seminars featuring unique guest speakers – inspire case studies featured in the Communications Plan.

Working Committee Participation

To effectively fulfill our vision of shared responsibility, the CGA seeks input and participation from the broadest possible representation of stakeholders.  Each of the working committees is comprised of members from the 16 active stakeholder groups within the CGA. These committee members operate on a consensus basis – ensuring that all CGA initiatives carry the support of the entire damage prevention community.  CGA committees meet in-person and virtually approximately 3-4 times per year.
