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 2020 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. Some here are Gay/Lesbian, Senior Citizens, Gen Xers, Ys, and Zs, ex-convicts, people in recovery, Christian, Jewish, and the list goes on.
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.
The languages used at the 2020 Conference will be spoken English, American Sign Language and International Sign. All large group events such as the welcome, icebreaker, auction, keynote and end note presentations, and announcements will feature all three languages. 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.
