Beginning October 1st/2015 the Council will institute a newer, streamlined CDA renewal system. We are making it easier for you to renew your CDA. The new system will provide us the capability to process your application more efficiently. Starting in October, when renewing your CDA online you'll be able to upload documents directly into YourCDA without the need to fax or email your documents. To become familiar with the new CDA renewal process, visit the comparison CDA renewal process document. (Effective 10/1/2015)
