COPA – A National Organisation

What is our membership model?

Our membership model involves each of the 22 Local Authority area’s Older People’s Forum or Group appointing 2 voting members to be their representatives – a total of 44.  These 44 voting members will in due course, form 6 Regional Committees and will attend national meetings and vote at the AGM. Currently 16 Forums have COPA Voting Members.

Voting Members are the key link between local, regional and national matters.  Each Region has initially been asked to nominate 1 Voting Member to become Trustees. When the Review of Engagement of Older People is completed, we will re-examine our structures in the light of the new situation.
