Winter arrived during June with a run of wet, windy and cold days. This was great weather for working in the office.
With an AMPJP Council meeting on 21 June 2018 there were a number of documents to prepare. Being the last Council meeting for the financial year also meant a number of annual report/reviews needed to be tabled on different aspects of our operations.
I felt a great sense of satisfaction that we were able to finalise the AMPJP Strategic Plan 2018-2021. You can read about this in a separate post on our website.
Another major document, AMPJP Governance Principles, Foundations and Applications, was discussed by a working group and at the AMPJP Council meeting. I am grateful to the staff, Boards and Trustees of AMPJP member organisations who have engaged with this document. We also benefited from the input of two canonists (of course they did agree with each other on every point). This document will be circulated for more consultation.
Over the coming month I will be working with a working group of the AMPJP Council on preparation for our AGM and annual Canonical Stewards forum to be held on 26-27 August 2018. I am looking forward to the AGM and Forum as an opportunity to meet canonical stewards from our member organisations and to better get to know their issues.
