2013 Conference


New Orleans, LA, US


The CODANOLA committee is ready to roll and shares the excitement with those who have already registered to attend the conference. Participants will have the opportunity to earn up to 1.05 RID CEUs during the conference. The early registration deadline has been extended until May 31, 2013, but don’t wait until then to register. Do it now!

Plan to arrive early to join the pre-conference bus tour of New Orleans on Thursday at 9am. If you have any interest in New Orleans’ 300 years of history, unique culture, architecture and culinary habits, this is a must-see tour! The coach bus tour will take us:

  • Through the streets of the French Quarter, then to the Ninth Ward where you’ll see the rebirth of the area most affected by Hurricane Katrina and the devastating levee failures. View the one-of-a-kind, Make It Right 9 (Brad Pitt’s organization) homes that are sprouting up; the home and recording studio of legend Fats Domino, and the Habitat for Humanity/Harry Connick Jr. sponsored Musician’s Village;
  • Travel under the shade of Live Oaks where you’ll stop for a short cemetery tour at St. Louis #3, home of some of New Orleans’ most elaborate tombs;
  • Stop in City Park (nearly twice as big as New York’s Central Park) for refreshments, restroom break or a quick snack; and
  • Finally, follow the St. Charles Streetcar line and wind your way through the historic Garden District: home to such celebrities as Archie Manning (where famous quarterbacks Peyton and Eli grew up), Sandra Bullock, John Goodman, Nicolas Cage and author Anne Rice.The deadline to guarantee a seat on the bus and to reserve your hotel room at the conference rate is June 23, 2013. Be sure to mention “Children of Deaf Adults” when making
    your reservation to get the best room rate available.
