NOTES FROM APRIL COUNCIL MEETING

The Council of the Auckland Justices of the Peace Association held its monthly meeting (in person) on April 13, 2022.
● The second round of meetings with MPs is planned to continue to support the effectiveness of their JP nomination process.
● 71 of the 80 participants in the March 2022 Accreditation Study Group have completed their Accreditation. Further online Accreditation training will be offered in May and July to complement the in-person Hub Professional Development sessions.
● All Hub professional development sessions have been scheduled for May and June and details of times and locations are published. All Justices are encouraged to attend a Hub session at a date and location that is convenient for them. Content is repeated at each location.
● The annual SG Co-ordinators and Rosterers meeting will be held on May 28, after an earlier postponement.
● There are still more than 40 members who have yet to pay their membership subscriptions. Attention to this matter would be appreciated – we are more than halfway through the year.
● We welcome 12 new Justices who have been sworn-in in March and April. A considerable backlog of nominees is still waiting to be sworn in.
● Council accepted with regret the resignation of Janet Thompson from the AJPA Council. Janet’s workload in her other roles has become unexpectedly heavy and she is unable to devote the necessary time to AJPA.
● Council seconded Larry Robbins to AJPA Council until the AGM in September. He will specifically take responsibility for JP Special Functions (Issuing Officers, Nominated Persons and Section 9 Personnel)
● Planning for events to celebrate the AJPA centenary continues. The event will be marked at Hub sessions, Coordinators’ Day, and with a celebration dinner in October. A plaque will be placed at the site of the meeting which agreed to form the Association, (the old Magistrates Court in Central Auckland)
