From: "CoDA Announcements" <codalist@codependents.org>
Subject: CoDA Gender-inclusive Language Task Force
Date: November 15th 2022
Due to a Board 2022 CoDA Service Conference (CSC) motion, which was later withdrawn during CSC, the CoDA Board is creating a "Gender-inclusive Language Task Force". 
 
Background: This was originally due to a 2021 Canada Voting Entity Issue (VEI) that was submitted too late for 2021 CoDA Service Conference (CSC). Subsequently, a 2022 CSC motion was submitted by the Board, of which was later withdrawn. Post CSC discussions, the Board felt it best to create a Task Force (volunteers have already volunteered)
