A meeting of Support Group Coordinators and Rosterers was held at Rose Park, Parnell on the 17th April 2021. A number of Council representatives were also present which provided a great opportunity to network and make new and renew old acquaintances. The meeting was chaired by Alan Martin who is responsible for the Support Group Committee on Council.
A ‘zoom around the web’ opened the meeting with the President providing attendees with an in-depth look at the JP Corner section of the new AJPA website. This was followed by the formation of four breakout groups which looked at:
- Succession Planning
- Successful Service Desk Manning
- Attracting Good Justices of the Peace
- How can Council Assist Support Groups?
The groups then fed back to all attendees their discussion and findings of which the Council have taken a number of takeaways to explore further.
Discussion ensued around Accreditation with a number of Support Group Coordinators presenting their respective methodology for addressing the issue.
A full and eventful day was had by all and all attendees overwhelmingly agreed that the format should be repeated at future meetings.
