Upcoming CoDA Service Conference (CSC)

From: "CoDA Group Representative List" <Group_Representative@codependents.org>
Date: March 11th 2024


To our Group Service Representatives (GSR),

Thank you for your service!

You may already know that the CoDA Service Conference (CSC) is being held 2024 July 22-27 in Ottawa, Canada. Attendance at CSC 2024 will be both in person and virtually via the internet.

Once again, a Voting Entity (VE) or Intergroup will be able to submit a Voting Entity Motion (VEM) in the same manner as the CoDA Board, CoRe Board, and CoDA’s Standing Committees. Is there anything your VE or Intergroup would like to see changed? Now’s your chance! Note that VEMs are due at the same time that all other motions are due which is 75 days prior to the start of conference. For CSC 2024, this date is 2024 May 8 by 11:59PM PDT. Other important deadlines, details, and information are listed here: CSC 2024 Delegate Package and Information Page. The link to the 2024 Motions Form is the Delegate Package listed under “Additional Documents and Blank Forms”.

It's also time for your VE or Intergroup to elect no more than two Delegates and Alternate Delegates. Please feel free to share with your VE or Intergroup that Delegates and Alternate Delegates may register here: CSC 2024 CoDA Service Conference (CSC) Eventbrite Registration. Also, any CoDA member may observe the conference either in person or virtually via the internet. Please consider registering as an Observer at the same link provided above. Once a member has registered as a Delegate or Alternate Delegate, we will be notified and an email will be sent by the VEL, with further instructions relative to your service role at CSC 2024. As the conference nears, registered Observers will receive a separate email with instructions and a viewing link.

Please contact the Voting Entity Liaison (VEL) at imcvel@coda.org if you have questions about whether your VE or Intergroup has been recognized by the Issues Mediation Committee (IMC) for participation at CoDA conferences.

It is important to note that if you, or someone you know, plans to attend CSC 2024 in person. Most people will need a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to travel to Canada, not both. Some people may only need their valid passport. Use this website to answer a few questions and determine what document you may need: https://ircc.canada.ca/english/visit/visas.asp. Here is another travel link: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/international-travel.html which may assist you.

In Service,
Laurie C. and Jorge B.
VEL and Vice-VEL
