AGM 2017

Notice of Meeting

 You’ve probably been thinking and wondering how you can be more involved and join this “subarashii” group.  The time and opportunity have finally arrived!!  Our AGM will be held on Sunday, February 26 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.  It will be held in Meeting Room #1 in the Central Library downtown.  616 Macleod Trail SE – on 7th Avenue directly across from City Hall.

The AGM is open to all JETAASA members whether you want to serve or not on the Executive Committee.

Come join us for light refreshments and learn more about what we’ve been up to, where we’re headed and, more importantly, how you can be a part of all of this!!  Aside from joining an awesome group of people, serving on the Executive Committee is a great way to build/develop/enhance a number of essential job skills – leadership, special events, organizational skills, time management, networking, communication skills, public speaking… but to name a few.

If you’re unable to attend the AGM, but would like to serve on the Executive Committee, please send us an email.  membership@jetaasa.ca
Remember that you can follow us on FB where we post events we hold, as well as other Japanese related news / events in Calgary.
