COTA Australia is the peak policy development, advocacy and representation organisation for older Australians, representing COTAs in every State and Territory and through them over 500,000 older Australians.
With the eight state and territory COTAs as our members, COTA Australia has two main governance structures to help inform our work:
- COTA Australia Board – made up of representatives of one representative of each of our eight member organisations, along with an independent Chair and up to 2 additional independent Directors.
- National Policy Council – each of the eight member organisations of COTA Australia nominates one elected member as its representative to the National Policy Council (NPC).
Additionally, COTA Australia comes together with its eight member organisations’s CEO’s and Presidents in the COTA Federation once a year to discuss our collective futures and directions.
