CoDA Service Conference New Dates

From: "CoDA Announcements" <>
Subject: CoDA Service Conference New Dates
Date: May 2nd 2020

This morning at the monthly public board meeting the board passed a motion supporting the following items.


1. The CoDA Service Conference (CSC) will take place from Monday August 24 through Thursday August 27. Times to be announced at a future date.

2.The Board approves the decision for all reports to be written only, without oral presentation.

3. The Board approves no old business on the last day.

4. The Board raised another idea they feel unanimously about. If giving up oral reports and choosing to have no old business on Thursday August 27 saves time, the board favors shorter days over a shorter conference.

Hopefully the virtual nature of the conference will allow many more non USA delegates to attend. Because of the many time zones involved the Board and the Events Committee feel that shorter days would be of the most benefit to folks in different time zones.

Please note: All delegates still must register in advance here: After you register, Steve S. the CoDA Voting Entity Liaison will contact you. If you have already registered, there is no need to re-register. If you are unsure if you are registered, please email Geff R. @ or Steve S. at

Also, please note to view the conference an internet connected device and registration (at )is required. To perform the role of delegate for your local CoDA Entity, a computer with a web camera, microphone, speakers or a quality smart phone with audio-video and an internet connection will be required.
