The Coalition of Celebrant Associations is an “association of associations”.  As such CoCA does not have individual celebrants as members, rather associations are members. Then member associations are represented by the delegates they nominate. However member associations accept individual celebrants as members, and all CoCA Associations have and/ or accept members from all states and territories around Australia.

If you join a CoCA association then you are linked  to CoCA as the peak body via your association.

Each association, whilst providing some common services,  is unique so comparing is difficult – a bit like comparing apples and oranges.

The following summaries are to help you find this best fit for you.
