The Coast Guard Chief Petty Officers Association (CPOA) was chartered on April 7, 1969 to advance the interests of the United States Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Corps and to encourage integrity, fidelity and fellowship within our ranks.
Today we work to advance the interests of our membership through community service, scholarships and fundraising, and by partnering with military and veterans organizations both locally and nationally. A non-partisan, not-for-profit organization, the CPOA serves as an advocate on a variety of military and veterans issues. Representing our members on Capitol Hill as a partner of The Military Coalition, our Association promotes legislation to enhance the lives of past, present and future members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
Our valued members are the lifeblood of our Association and our success depends on volunteer leadership at the National and Chapter levels, and on the generosity of our sponsors and partners.
