A person can attend meetings online or in-person. Those who want to attend a meeting online can use a free CoDA Meeting Locator. They can also download a newcomer packet to learn more about the program.
Some meetings have a speaker who shares their experience, strength, and hope in recovery. Other meetings include a discussion or reading on a particular topic. This type of meeting may be called a Step or Tradition Study Meeting.
|Have you tried Meetn, the new online meeting platform?
It’s turning out to become a decent alternative to Zoom and to the other major platforms.
Meetings are open to all
Meetings are open to all and anyone who wishes to attend a Coda meeting can participate. Meetings are either in person or online. However, due to the current COVID-19 crisis, some meetings may be temporarily inactive or have switched to an online meeting only. To find out more, visit the CoDA International website. You can search for CoDA meetings in your area using the free world wide meeting database.
Most Coda meetings are held on a weekly basis and last an hour or so. Members of the group share their experiences and offer recovery strategies. They are also happy to answer any questions that newcomers might have. Meetings are usually conducted off the 12-step programme of Alcoholics Anonymous. The meetings are usually run by a volunteer and are open to the public. You can find a Coda meeting near you by searching the database on the CoDA website or logging in to the Meetn platform.
No password is required
Codas are musical melodies that wrap up all of the themes and melodies that have been played in a piece of music. They add a sense of closure and are a great way to wrap up a piece. They are most commonly found in classical music, but can also be heard in pop and rock songs.
Inviting someone to a meeting requires only a click on the link in their calendar invitation or email. This link contains an encoded version of the password, which is listed in plain text below the meeting ID. The obfuscation of the password offers no security value to anyone intercepting the link.
Hearing relatives of CODAs often interject “parentally” into conversations between professionals and their Deaf parents, causing power reversals and unhealthy family dynamics. The most important thing to do is support inclusive family environments that allow CODAs to communicate fluently with their Deaf parents. This includes access to schools and professional settings.
Meetings are free
Depending on the web conferencing software you use, online Coda meetings can be free to join. Some require desktop apps while others, like Dialpad, offer the option of joining without downloading anything as long as you have a computer and an internet connection.
You can find Coda meetings in your area by searching the CoDA database on the organization’s website. The database lists worldwide meetings in both onsite and online formats. You can also find recordings of past meetings, which may be helpful for those who cannot attend in person.
In addition to being free, online Coda meetings are easy to join. All you need to do is request an invite from the meeting host, and you’ll be able to join using your computer or smartphone. You can even schedule meeting reminders to make sure everyone shows up on time. You can also use the chat feature to exchange messages with other meeting participants. You can even enable reaction emojis to engage with the presenter.
Meetings are recorded
Meetings are often recorded to provide a historical record of discussions that may be needed for future reference. This record can also be used as a verification of decisions and a reminder of past actions and events. It can also be shared with people who were unable to attend the live meeting.
It’s a good idea to record meetings, because it’s easy to forget important details or overlook things in the heat of the moment. This makes it much easier to review the meeting later and uncover any details that were missed during the discussion.
The recording is saved in a shared folder on your computer or in Microsoft Stream (as long as you have a license). Anyone can access the meeting recording. However, only the organizer can delete it. Meeting recordings don’t capture whiteboards, annotations, or content shared in the stage view by apps. In addition, they don’t include videos or animations embedded in PowerPoint Live presentations.
