Council on Consumer Affairs (COCA)

At the Center for Disability Resources, our Consumer Advisory Council (CAC) uses the self-chosen name as the Council on Consumer Affairs (COCA). The CDR COCA consists of a majority of individuals with developmental disabilities and family members of such individuals who represent the seven congressional districts in South Carolina. It meets quarterly at the CDR during which time the CDR Director (or in his absence the assistant director) provides an update on current UCEDD events and state and national issues that may be of relevance or interest to COCA members. At least once per year the UCEDD Director provides information on changes, potential changes and issues to consider related to the CDR 5-year plan. At that time (and additionally upon request from COCA members) opportunity for discussion, input and review is provided.
