EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING:  Saturday 17 March at 10.00 am, at Droushia Heights Hotel

This brief meeting is required to change the P3A's Constitution, bringing us into line with a new legal regime governing clubs and associations.  Notice has been sent to all our members. 


Our Monthly talk for March will take place on Saturday 17th March at Droushia Heights Hotel, immediately after the EGM at 10.00am
John Harper FCA, FCIS, FCMI, F. Inst.TT, TEP has spent most of his working life dealing with trusts and related offshore structures as Managing Director of trust companies in Jersey, Bermuda and Mauritius. Since retiring from "the coal face", for the last ten years he has spent half of that time travelling the globe teaching all the subjects that lead up to the award of the professional designation for membership of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners ("STEP")  
John will give a brief history of the genesis of trusts in England some 800 years ago; their development in so-called "common law" jurisdictions; the uses for trusts and related entities such as foundations; the respective rights and duties of trustees, settlors, beneficiaries and others; the impact of forced heirship (in civil law countries) and generally an overview of what goes on in the life of a professional trustee.  He will recount some of his most interesting and even terrifying experiences encountered over the past forty plus years.
He will be pleased to take questions of a general nature subject to available time after the talk.

There will be complimentary refreshments served at 11.00am. The talk will finish at 12 Noon.
