Membership Information for Colleges & Universities

School Membership Brochure

The Canadian Organization of Campus Activities, better known by its acronym COCA, repre-sents more than 60 post-secondary institutions from Vancouver to St. John’s. COCA also boasts more than 75 associate members. Typically, school members are student associations or college departments that are involved with campus activities programming of all kinds (social issues, awareness programs, entertainment, campus clubs and societies, film, orientation, win-ter week, guest speakers, pub programming, non-credit courses, leadership & professional de-velopment, marketing campus activities, etc.). Associate members are entertainers, booking agencies, artist management companies, and other suppliers to the campus activities sector.

Founded in 1982 as the successor organization to the Canadian Entertainment Conference (first CEC in 1967), COCA has now completed more than twenty-five years of successful opera-tion. The highlight of every year is the National Conference in June when campus representa-tives gather to learn from more than 30 education sessions in various formats including lectures, seminars, round table discussions, participatory workshops, leadership & professional devel-opment sessions, panel discussions, and educational keynote speakers. All of these are offered on a variety of topics related to campus activities.

All members are encouraged to find out what’s new in entertainment by watching the many showcases featuring music, comedy and variety artists. The Conference also features guest speakers on the lecture circuit as well as film showcases and a trade show (known as the Cam-pus Activities Biz Hall) for campus buyers to shop and meet with suppliers one on one.

COCA members also host regional conferences and meetings (East, West, and Central) from time to time during the academic year. These provide more opportunities for members to assess new entertainers and do some block booking with other schools. COCA Notes, the organiza-tion's official newsletter is published on-line three or four times each year and the COCA Mem-bership Directory is available to members only, online at any time.

In September 1996, COCA established a national head office in London Ontario in order to improve services for its members and to have a central communication point for the general public.

You will find more information about COCA on the COCA web site and you are always welcome to contact members of the Board of Directors or the Executive Director for further information. Please click here to Email COCA.
