Here is the latest news about CODA CON! 2020… DRUM ROLL PLEASE….

•The board has approved an increase in conference attendees up to 500. When your name comes up from the waitlist, you will receive an email with a link to pay and confirm your registration. This must be done with in 24 hours. If it is not paid, we will move to the next person on the waitlist. 

We graciously ask for your patience as this will not be done all at once to minimize any glitches or confusion.

•At this time, rooms are sold out for Sunday at the hotel venue, Crowne Plaza.  We are looking at alternative options for accommodations.

•There is still a waitlist for conference registration.  If you want to be put on the conference registration waitlist, please go to Your CODA International membership will need to be up to date prior to registering. Once you click on “add to waitlist,” you will need to continue inputting your information including selecting a payment of either $250 deposit or $500 full rate. You will NOT need to make the payment at this time. Continue to fill out the rest of the registration form and submit. You will receive an email confirmation. IF you do not receive an email, this means your application was not completed; log in and review the information you submitted. If you still have issues after completing these steps, please email

•We will create a waitlist for hotel rooms. We are looking into a “find a roommate” type of app to help you find or be a roommate(s) during conference. When a waitlist becomes available, please sign up if you are open to sharing and/or need a room.

•If you are registered and find that you need to cancel your conference registration, please email with your information including if you need a refund on other items or add-ons purchased (T-shirt, yearbook, pre-/post-conference activities, etc).  Note: Refunds are reduced by a $25 processing fee at this time. 

•If you have a room and need to cancel it, email:, not the hotel

•If you are already on the waitlist, please wait patiently as we work to get people registered. Please be prepared to pay $250 or $500 when you receive your email with the payment link.

If you have any questions about your membership status or registration, email

Stay tuned, and check the website for more information. We will update the membership as soon as we have new information available. 

***** IN THE MEANTIME*****

We strongly encourage you to reach out to other local Codas and actively get involved with local events. Please reach out to your region director and have the conversation of how to have more local gatherings if they are not already happening. Don’t let Coda gatherings be limited to conferences and retreats. 


From your CODA CON! 2020 Co-chairs with gratitude,
