Through its work within CoCA, the Civil Celebrations Network CCN has raised a number of matters of concern with the Attorney-General's Department

  • Copyright Agency Limited to bring low cost copyright licence cover for CoCA association members
  • Arthur J Gallagher to bring lower cost individual celebrant professional indemnity and public liability cover for CoCA Association celebrants 
  • the need for a broader range of continuing professional development options for marriage celebrants
  • the need for Marriage Act Reform to ensure all marriage ceremonies have the same components to address issues related to child and forced marriage 
  • issues related to same sex marriage
