JETAACanberra Important notice – JETAA AGM this Saturday

Hello everyone,

As you know, this Saturday we will hold the Canberra JETAA Inc Annual General Meeting.

The meeting will be held at the outgoing Presidential Palace in Giralang and a sushi luncheon will be supplied by JETAA.

Currently there are not enough confirmed attendees to for a quorum, let alone to fill all elected positions.

Without enough ex-JETs willing to ‘step up’ and pay a little back to the programme that gave us all the opportunity to experience Japan through the JET Programme JETAA’s ability to carry out our activities may be seriously impaired. Currently, these activities include:

  • Orientation for departing JETs
  • Promotion and support of the JET Programme
  • Participation in Canberra-Nara Candle Festival
  • Annual Australia-Japan trivia night
  • Annual field trip
  • Monthly O-Shaberikai
  • Participation in activities organised by other members of Canberra’s Japan and Japan-interest community
  • Other social or cultural (or both) activities as decided my JETAA members

Positions available are:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Social Function Coordinator (multiple positions available)
  • Orientation Coordinator
  • Webmaster

If you are able to attend please e-mail Nicola (nicola_sav) or Murray (woodford_murray) or both by COB Wednesday, 2 June 2010.

Thank you.


Canberra JETAA Inc President
