Who is TCN?

Who is TCN?

The Celebrants Network Inc - TCN is a celebrant association who welcomes all civil celebrants to join. Whilst it’s not compulsory for celebrants to join an association it does give them the opportunity to be a part of a professional group of likeminded people;  to talk, share ideas and learn from each other’s experiences, and also to build a network of people that can be called upon in an emergency.

The Celebrants Network Inc is an Australia wide, not for profit association run by a committee of dedicated celebrant volunteers who work together online throughout each month and then meet once a month via a teleconference call via the wonders of technology.

Please Note: the faces on these screens are not TCN Members - we are all much better looking!
 
We are a member of CoCA - the Coalition of Celebrant Associations - Australia’s peak celebrant body

and as the Attorney General department has made clear, they view a celebrant being a member of an association as evidence of a their professional attitude to the role.

? Marriage ceremonies
