CODA International invites you to the 36th annual CODA Conference!

  • “Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball {Coda} is pretty good, too.” – Yogi Berra


20 - 23 June 2024

San Diego, California, USA

The 2024 Conference theme, CODALeague, was born from the idea that Codas are a league of our own.

As the smoke cleared from the chaos of the pandemic, it was noted that Covid-19 took a unique toll on our community of Codas. Whether it was continuing to work with masks and shields, even in “hazmat” type of outfits… worrying about loved ones who were stricken with illnesses, unable to be by their side or to ensure total access to communication… dealing with death and grief without being surrounded by loved ones for support… losing jobs, housing concerns, learning to school at home, and remote work…and many many other challenges. We faced specific challenges that others outside our world could not fathom - we were initiated not by choice but life circumstances, into a League of Our Own: We are, CODALeague!

Photography Release

20 June to 23 June 2024

This Release and Permission to Use Photographs is made and effective 20 June 2024 Between Children of Deaf Adults International aka CODA International Inc, a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of California, USA with you as a participant of CODALeague 2024.

For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, you as a participant hereby irrevocably and perpetually grant CODA International Inc. the unrestricted right, power and authority to reproduce, publish, print, distribute, transmit, copy or otherwise exploit in whole or in part, any medium known or later discovered, including but not limited by means of digital transmission through the internet, all photographs which are taken of you as a participant of the 2024 CODA International Conference.

Conference Behavior Statement

In our public behavior at CODA, we need to be tolerant of our diversity. That means we need to accept that another's behavior may be different from our own, and at the same time, we need to be sensitive to how our own behavior may be perceived by others. We need to remember that when we participate in any activity sponsored by CODA International, Inc., we are representative of the entire membership of CODA International, Inc. We ask, therefore, that our behavior be such that the membership will not feel "offended" or "put off." We do not feel the need to have "RULES" of behavior. We trust in the "common sense" of each individual, and that their respect and "duty of care" toward each other will suffice. 

The CODA Conference aims to be a safe haven for ALL who attend. It should be a safe place to express one's innermost feelings. It should be a time to be "ourselves." You may experience exhilaration at the new sense of "freedom" and/or you may even feel some fear, as perceived "taboos" are broken. We come from widely diverse backgrounds, and our ways of expressing ourselves will, necessarily be, widely diverse. We ask that all Codas be sensitive to the needs of others and tolerant of that very diversity. 

Confidentiality Statement

Conference participants are asked to respect the confidentiality of their fellow Coda participants in breakout sessions. Anything said during a session stays in the group. Anything shared at any other time, in any other gathering remains with the group as well. You may share issues, topics, or points only in ways that maintain confidentiality and anonymity (i.e., no names, ages, descriptive characteristics, and no specific content that may identify someone). This confidentiality statement is absolute and timeless; therefore, it extends beyond the immediate time of the conference.     

Social Media Policy

CODA International, Inc. requests that participants of CODA Conferences engage in the following responsible and respectful practice of the use of Social Media: Be Clear that your opinions are your own. You are a member of CODA International, but you are representative of yourself. Be Respectful and maintain Confidentiality of other members attending CODA Conference. Ask first, before you post. Use Good Judgment in sharing only public information. What happens at CODA stays with Codas. Be mindful that not everything is to be shared outside of Conference. Be aware that what you post is permanent. Even deleted photos, posts, and comments can be traced and copied. Be careful what goes up.     

Communications Statement

The official conference languages are spoken English and American Sign Language. All large group events such as the welcome, icebreaker, auction, keynote and endnote presentations, and announcements will feature spoken English, ASL, and written translation, where possible. Breakouts and workshops are generally conducted in spoken English and will not include official interpretation. If you have specific communication needs, please let us know (on the registration form) and we will do our best to offer accommodations.

Conference Refund Policy
