The Local Coordinator Program is established in order to promote the CGAA in the general region of Coast Guard Aviation Units as well as other selected locations. The purpose is to raise the profile of the Association, interact with former and active-duty aviation personnel as well as local Air Auxiliary, and to recruit new members. The Local Coordinator represents the CGAA to the following:
- The local Command. The sole point of contact for CGAA issues. Assist the Command as the CO may desire.
- All CG Aviation personnel in the area. Officer or Enlisted, Active or Retired as well as Air Auxiliary.
- The Local Community. As able, involve CGAA people in community activities and civic as well as other veterans organizations.
We still need Local Coordinators in Astoria, Humboldt Bay, and Port Angeles. If you are located in any of these three areas, give this a try. Covid-19 has caused the cancellation or severe restrictions on scheduled events. however, our LC’s coordinated with the various Commands for the annual CGAA awards presentations held all over the country both last year and this year.. This has been but one example of the good work of our Coordinators representing all Pteros.
