Each year COPE produces a minimum of 1-3 conferences. U.S. Regional Conferences are held on the even numbered years, while the International Conference is held on the odd numbered year. Locations are chosen based on two factors. First, the Board considers Regional invitations received from our Membership communities desiring to serve as site hosts, providing a wide variety of support. Second, the site location may not be visited for two seasons in a row. Both COPE members and the Board of Directors are welcome to attend our International affiliates Regional Conferences in support of their growing work under the COPE umbrella.
