Major Change: Biennial National Conferences

Ric Carlyon - Sunday, February 28, 2016

In a departure after holding National Conferences of Justices of the Peace for some 90 years, the Royal Federation will change to biennial conferences after 2018.

The suggestion to have conferences every second year was made by North Otago Justices of the Peace Association
at this weekend’s conference in Dunedin. In support of their remit, North Otago said travel and conference expenses were financially overwhelming smaller Associations, in some cases exceeding income. 

The remit was passed. 

The next two Annual Conferences are already arranged and will go ahead… next year in Rotorua and in Christchurch in 2018… after which Conferences will be held every other year. Royal Federation Board will figure out the form of Annual General Meetings in the “off years” enabling constitutional, etc, requirements to be satisfied: arrangements to be put to delegates at Rotorua next year.
