CPOA/CGEA Convention To Be Held in
Muskegon/Grand Haven, MI
August 2021 During Coast Guard Festival Week!

We’re all sad to have missed out on our Seattle Convention this year but we’re hoping to make up for it by scheduling our 2021 Convention at the Shoreline Inn & Conference Center, Muskegon, MI, during the 2021 Coast Guard Festival. Just minutes away from Grand Haven, we’ll be able to conduct our business 2 – 5 August and attend the Coast Guard Festival main activities 6th & 7th of August.  Make it a family event and ensure to enjoy all that Grand Haven has to offer, and enjoy the Festival as well!
