Notes from December Council Meeting

The Council of the Auckland Justices of the Peace Association met for the final time this year, on December 14th, 2022. 

  • We welcomed six new Justices who have been sworn in in two recent ceremonies. These Justices will commence their mentoring sessions on Service Desks as soon as possible.  It was confirmed that during EACH mentoring session the new Justice should spend up to 10 minutes observing, and the remainder of the session ‘doing’,  with the experienced Justice providing supervision and/or advice.
  • We are pleased to report that 76% of Active AJPA Justices are now accredited. Let’s try to get to 100% in the new year.
  • The annual Support Group Co-ordinator’s and Rosterer’s meeting has been booked for Saturday, April 15th 2023. Please put this date in your calendar.
  • Surplus supplies of masks and hand sanitiser which were given to AJPA  have now been donated to Medical Aid Abroad
  • 86% of AJPA members have now paid their special Centenary Year’s $45 membership subscription up till the end of our financial year in June 2023. All unpaid subscriptions are now overdue.
  • Holiday closure dates for service desks should be advised to the Registrar and will be updated on the website.  We need to keep our website accurate and current. The AJPA Office will be closed (and our Registrar on holiday) from 23rd December until Monday, 9 January 2023.
  • 23 Justices expressed interest in attending the Royal Federation’s Conference to be held in Invercargill in March 2023. From these applicants five accredited AJPA members were selected to receive some funding to attend. All AJPA Council members will also attend.
  • Thank you from those Council members who have been invited to attend Support Group Christmas functions.
  • Professional Development dates for 2023 are being finalised. Hub sessions will be held between April 29th  and June 18th.  The opportunity for Hub Managers to sign up for a preferred date will be offered in February 2023.
  • It is anticipated that Swearing-in ceremonies next year will include up to 12 Provisional Justices – which will help alleviate much of the backlog.
  • Council sends our thanks to ALL Justices for their work in 2022 and good wishes for the holiday break.
