The National Settlement Policy Network (SPN) is a joint initiative of RCOA and the Settlement Council of Australia (SCOA) to enable our members to participate in planning joint advocacy on settlement issues. RCOA and SCOA co-host quarterly SPN teleconferences that focus on specific themes. The teleconferences provide an opportunity for members to hear from guest speakers with expertise in particular areas of settlement policy, raise issues of concern and share ideas for ways forward.
