2021 Annual Seaside Conference

COSA is hosting a hybrid conference this summer!  We are planning to offer a Seaside Conference like no other this summer.  Participants are invited to be at the Conference Center in person or Zoom in from their school or district.

The conference will be offered on a hybrid structure, where attendees can attend either onsite or remotely. Most presenters will be onsite. Not all sessions will be available in real time to remote participants, but all breakout sessions will be recorded for later viewing. Thank you for your flexibility as we do our best to provide you with attendance options. We hope to see you in Seaside!
