Exciting News! CODA is now WASA!

Effective immediately The California Operator & Door Association (CODA)
will operate under its newname: Western Access Systems Association (WASA)

Since the early 1980s, The California Operator & Door Association has been the leading representative for the garage door and opener industry in California. As the industry expanded and evolved, along with the void in affiliate representation for the southwestern states outside California. We felt the need to take this step to better serve our members and expand the network.

Now operating under The Western Access Systems Association, we will represent gates, doors, and access system professionals in the southwestern states of California, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. A message from Justin Kha, President WASA - "From the first day I joined the Board of CODA, the plan was to include Arizona, Nevada and Utah in our regional affiliate association. We also saw increasing participation by gate and access professionals on CODA's Board and with activities. It's been long overdue so I am excited to announce that we now have a name that accurately reflects who we serve. The overwhelming support of this initiative, along with a very dedicated team of volunteers on the Board helped to make this a reality. Even though our name has changed our goal remains the same. WASA will be the source for information & education to help our members grow their business.

The Western Access Systems Association will continue our focus on maintaining theintegrity of the industry and connecting professionals and companies in the Western States and beyond!" WASA's regional trade show is on track for Oct 4th-5th, 2019 at The Orleans in Las Vegas, NV. This year WASA will represent more industries, and we anticipate the show will boast higher attendance than ever before.
