North East Hub met at Red Beach. 64 members attended travelling from as far away as Helensville, Warkworth and Takapuna.
There were 34 Justices at the Southern Hub meeting held in Friendship House, Manukau City.
At both venues Justices, on feedback sheets, said the overall quality of content was very good and without exception everyone reported learning something new.
The first Hub meetings in each part of Auckland has a theme to welcome back Justices who have not been engaged in duties for a while, as well as updating those who are regular attendees at Support Group gatherings. The theme worked… at both meetings there were Justices who had not been to Association activities for some time and they were appreciative, gaining renewed confidence enabling them to better carry out Ministerial duties.
Of note was that some Justices attended Hub meetings other than at their local venue. They found dates and times that suited them further afield: which is the reason why all Hub Meetings are advised to all Justices so they can “mix and match”. Justices are reminded to take Ministerial Manual to these meetings – copies are available if you do not have one and that each session can be used to meet Accreditation requirements.
