The Coalition of Celebrant Associations Inc (CoCA) member associations work together to bring a wider range of benefits to their own association members, as well as working for the common good of all celebrants.
Celebrant Insurance and CAL Copyright licence
In the last year, the Coalition of Celebrant Associations has negotiated better celebrant insurance and CAL copyright options for its member associations, for their Association Committees to use if these suit their objectives.
The Attorney-General's Department Marriage Guidelines (Page23) encourages celebrants to take out PI & PL insurance cover:
"The department strongly encourages all Commonwealth-registered marriage celebrants to ensure that they maintain current professional indemnity insurance as they may be legally liable for actions taken in solemnising a marriage."
Some member associations have negotiated their own arrangements for these and other member benefits.
What benefits do our CoCA member associations offer ?
All members of CoCA member associations can negotiate a $30 discount on Individual insurance, if that is your preference for celebrant insurance.
