Happy new year to all. We are all looking forward to a more settled environment as the year progresses.
As the characteristics of the Covid spread change, it is appropriate that we all think about the where, why and how we do our JP roles. It is up to each JP to make decisions about if they are comfortable to provide a service and if you are comfortable, then how and where it is done. If you have any concerns, you can say no to providing the service.
If you are happy to provide the service, then please think carefully about where it is safest to meet, and the health precautions that you need to have in place (distance, masks, sanitizer etc. )
Please be careful and take all necessary precautions - we want us all to be well and healthy!!
As we move closer to the holiday season and to a new year, we can look back and look forward. 2021 - another year of challenges and different ways of doing things. We have all undertaken our JP duties differently - physical distancing, electronic document certification, etc. 2022 - maybe back to some normality but with ongoing consideration of the health status. You will see professional development opportunities being offered; the day long seminar will be happening again; and we will be celebrating the Society’s centenary. Watch out for the next edition of the Herald in your emails soon. Thank you for your ongoing valued contribution to the legal system in Tasmania. Best wishes David Hudson JP President TSJPI ...

The Society is very fortunate to have so many members offering their time and expertise at one of our Document Signing Centres. To say thank you on behalf of the Society and the Tasmanian public, we are having a morning tea this Saturday. If you can’t get there, please accept our thanks for the services you provide. The Society is also starting to make plans to celebrate our centenary next year. Keep your ears and eyes open!! And lastly, if you know a JP who isn’t a member of the Society, please have a talk to them about joining. As we get back into professional development, it is important to keep abreast and up to date about the why, how, what and when of the services we provide. At this stage, this training is only available from the Society. Thank you and best wishes. David Hudson JP, President. ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks to all those JPs who attended the recent professional development (PD) session on witnessing documents, etc. About 25 attended. Thanks to our presenters Mike and Tom. We have a “waiting list” for the same session so you will see another invitation in the near future. The Society will also be providing an induction session for JPs-to-be in the next few weeks. If you have any suggestions for PD, please let us know. In planning stages - on-line training and also the JP Seminar in March next year. Regards. David Hudson JP. ... See MoreSee Less
