Topics arising from Notes and Actions

Jenny has agreed the establishment of an informal JP signing site in the Community Room to run from 1 pm to 2.30 pm on the first Tuesday of each month prior to the JPToK meeting. She and Rosa will share the signing between them with other JPToK attendees called upon as needed.

AHD with no attorney

Michael mentioned the case of a principal making an AHD without appointing any attorneys, and without having an EPA. Discussion centred on how the principal would lodge or distribute the AHD to parties that would make use of it. No firm conclusion was reached.

QJA Journal Autumn 2017

Michael discussed his summary report. Apart the informative Q&A pages the main discussion concerned the new Mental Health AHD and Nominated Responsible Person guides and forms. All present perused the forms to gain familiarity.

JP Bulletin Issue 14

Michael went through his summary with a few interesting stats.

QJA Search Warrants Workshop

Carol and Michael had attended the QJA Gold Coast branch meeting on 14 March where the president Keith Revell gave a detailed workshop on search warrants. Michael produced a summary report. Not all points raised by Keith achieved general agreement especially the suggestion that search warrants must only be sworn rather than affirmed.

Signing Sites

With Karina taking over officially as coordinator at Australia Fair there were a number of comments and discussion about her message laying down strict guidelines. We were reminded of the Burleigh team meeting the next day.
