Our Process

Our Process

COTA Australia’s policies are developed through participatory processes in which older people play active roles.

COTA Australia’s members develop and monitor processes to ensure that policy decisions:

  • Are determined by seniors in the interests of seniors.
  • Are informed by the views of a diverse range of seniors,
  • Are supported by research evidence
  • Enable seniors and their organisations to propose policy positions, elect people to the Policy Council/committee and to any regional/area policy structures.

To become involved in our policy work contact your state or territory COTA.

Policy Councils are the bodies responsible for policy approval and are the forums for discussing policy directions, priorities and strategies.
