The major change in the organisation of the Association’s members across Greater Auckland takes effect from this weekend.
In recent weeks Justices of the Peace have supported the move to Hubs, 8 on the mainland and one catering for Waiheke and Great Barrier Islands. Each Hub provides a local gathering place for Justices to meet and for training.
At each of the 8 Hubs the first training session is specially designed to up-date Justices, whether they have attended recent education forums or haven’t attended for some time.
Those in the latter case will be particularly welcomed. “For some, it’s just a matter of regaining confidence and getting up to speed on latest practices” says Principal Trainer Garry Nicholls, “so they can resume their service to the community”.
Of interest to all Justices will be latest techniques in providing certified copies of material downloaded from electronic devices such as the internet and mobile phones, with emphasis on special requirements for financial documents.
While Hubs have been set up to provide local bases for meetings, the co-ordinator of Support Groups, Dawn Jones, stresses that Justices can attend any of the Hub sessions, choosing the dates and times that suit. Justices should take their Ministerial Manuals to these meetings.
