The Board has been pleased to award Life Membership of the NSW Justices Association Inc. to a number of NSWJA Members through nomination at the Branch level.
In 2002 when the NSWJA became incorporated rules on awarding Life Membership changed. At that time there were number of Branch Life Members. Under changes to the Constitution as part of Incorporation the criteria for the awarding of Life Membership was changed as per the current Constitution. It was decided at that time that all current Branch Life Members would be award Life Membership of the Association.
Life Associate Members are previous Life Members who have relinquished their JP Commission but remain an Associate Member of the Association. There is no provision in the Constitution to award Life Associate Member to anyone who has not previously been awarded Life Membership of the Association.
