What's New with JPus?
The new website is here! At times, the launching process seemed all-consuming. Despite its magnitude, it feels good that our little team pulled it off successfully. See our Technical Support section, below, for links to helpful articles so you can navigate our pages like a pro.
Massachusetts JPs, now is the time! The Resolve for a Commission to evaluate the 1-Day Solemnizer rule will have a public hearing on September 22. No complaining about the 1-Dayers if you don't step up and let your voice be heard. We've made it easy for you. Please see the details here.
Save the Dates
Unfortunately, Deaf, hard-of-hearing and DeafBlind couples have a difficult time finding a marriage officiant for their ceremony. Let's put an end to that. Save the date for our online training:

Even with the bustle of the new website launch, I'm pleased that we were able to squeeze in an August Zoom call. We kept it informal and had no agenda - just a chance to check in on each other. Be sure to join our next Zoom:
Town and City Clerks
I will be attending Massachusetts and Connecticut Town Clerk Association Conferences next week. And the following week, if Covid doesn't scare me away, I'm planning a trip to connect with Florida clerks. Strengthening relationships with our municipal partners is so important. Working together means we are there for each other: Collaborating on legislative matters, onboarding new officiants, and working out differences when needed.
I'd love to have some JPs help manage the information tables at the conferences: Springfield, MA on September 22nd and Westbrook, CT on the 23rd. Send me a note
if you are available and would like to spend an hour or two together meeting our hard-working town clerks.
