What is the CoDA Service Conference (CSC)?

The CoDA Service Conference (CSC) is CoDA World’s annual business meeting. The CSC is held each year in order to transact CoDA World business through the group conscience process. The location varies from year to year to support, and help grow CoDA communities around the world.

Who can attend the CoDA Service Conference (CSC)?

Delegates and Board members attend the CSC. A delegate is an individual in the fellowship who is elected by their Voting Entity to represent its wishes at the CSC. Committee Chairs, who also attend, can be granted voice, but no vote by the delegates at CSC, through group conscience.  Everyone else is an observer. Anyone that would like to observe the CSC process is welcome.

Does everyone attending the CoDA Service Conference (CSC) have a voice and vote?

No.   Voice and vote are restricted to elected delegates and Trustees on the CoDA, Inc. Board.

Do I have to register to attend the CoDA Service Conference (CSC)?

Yes. We use the registration list to email Conference information and motion updates during the Conference. Motions will not be printed during the Conference. A summary of the motions will be delivered to business meeting attendees at the end of each day. 

Is there a registration fee for the CoDA Service Conference (CSC)?

Voting Entity Issues (VEIs)
Those VEIs that are received at least 30 days before CSC will be assigned at CSC. VEIs that come in after that, and during the rest of the year, will be assigned whenever they come in.  Whoever has been assigned a VEI will report their responses to the Board, to the VE that initiated the issue and to the Fellowship.  Any decisions that require motions will be submitted in time for voting at the next CSC.
