Royal Federation

STRUCTURE OF THE ROYAL FEDERATION of NZ JUSTICES’ ASSOCIATIONS Inc

The Royal Federation is the national body consisting of the 28 Justices’ Associations which meet at the Annual General Meeting as part of the Annual Conference although 2022 was an exception where only the AGM could be held virtually due to the restrictions of Covid-19.

The Royal Federation enables all Justices of the Peace throughout New Zealand to make representations to the various stakeholders and to speak with a single voice.

All Associations and their members are bound by the Royal Federation policies, and Associations’ policies must accord with those of the Royal Federation.

New Zealand is divided into 28 separately constituted Justices of the Peace Associations:
