COTA provides its members with the chance to belong to an organisation that works with them and for them.  Our members participate in various programs and events, get to meet and connect with others and are provided with opportunities to improve their lifestyle.  We also help raise awareness of the contributions that older Australians continue to make.

COTA members receive a personalised membership card giving access to The COTA Rewards and Savings Program, which incorporates The Ambassador Card - Australia's premier member benefit program. This provides a wide range of exclusive benefits and services, which saves them money and improves their well-being.

We put people before profit, and inform and influence Federal, State & Local Government, the business sector and the general community to deliver better outcomes for people aged 50 and over. COTA provides opportunities for members to directly contribute to the identification of issues and the development of policy and it undertakes research to seek their views to bring about change. 
Anyone can join COTA irrespective of their age, background or where they live. An engaged and growing membership enables COTA to become a stronger and more sustainable organisation.  Importantly, it also allows us to become more persuasive when fighting for better outcomes for older Australians.

We invite you to become a COTA member to Belong, Benefit and Be Heard.
