Congratulations to our CoCA Chair Dorothy Harrison from Perth and Vice-Chair Liz Pforr Brisbane travelling to Melbourne to present to today's Select Committee Hearing on theExposure Draft of the Marriage Amendment (Same-Sex Marriage) Bill.
CoCA represents over 8,500 Commonwealth Marriage Celebrants of whom approximately 8,000 are independent professional civil celebrants.
Being practitioners in the profession, Liz and Dorothy were able to explain the complex nature of the Marriage Act as it applies to the marrying public.
