Mark Your Calendars - 20th Anniversary COPAA Conference

March 8-11, 2018 · Monterey, California



  Why attend COPAA's Annual Conference? 

When you have a tough case against a school district and need information or advice where do you turn? If you’re like most, you come to the unparalleled peer-to-peer network COPAA.

You will receive absolute top notch education advice, support, and strategy. This conference is typically approved for up to 22 CLE credit hours for attending all 4 days of training (see below).

crowd networking at COPAA conferenceCOPAA members work in the trenches every day to assure that IDEA, Section 504, The ADA and other federal and state laws are implemented as intended. We have experienced, time and time again, the full synergistic force of effective IEP teams; where parents and students are equal members, the team works collaboratively, and the resulting individualized program gives the student a real shot at life enrichment as the result of receiving a meaningful, quality education.


The Annual COPAA Conference is your opportunity to learn, face-to-face, effective strategies from the COPAA network. Learn information and approaches to support each student through the spirit and letter of the law to be as independent, self-sufficient, self-advocating as possible; enforcing their civil right to equal opportunity.

General Session COPAA Conference
This exciting conference sells out because of sessions, events and networ
king opportunities that rejuvenate your spirit and hone your skills to assure that every child you represent has a chance to learn, to achieve and to contribute, to graduate ready to attend college or pursue a career, and to be a productive and contributing member of his or her community.

Continuing Legal Education

We submit each year for approval by the Supreme Court of Ohio Commission on Continuing Legal Education and to the Illinois MCLE. The majority of states have a reciprocity agreement with one of these states.  

Please be sure check your state for reciprocity with one of these states.  Certificates of attendance are provided at the conference.  You must sign in to each session attended on-site.
