Here is the information regarding this year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) & Shinnenkai, scheduled for the evening of Saturday, January 19, 2019.

For newly-returned JETs or Dai-Senpai who have not had the chance to get involved with JETAA in recent years, the AGM is our chapter’s most significant event of the year. Besides being an opportunity for old and new friends to mingle in the festive atmosphere of the New Year, the AGM celebrates yet another successful cycle of diverse activities in the JET community and beyond, and opens the next cycle with the election of a new Executive Committee.

Again, this year, our event is hosted at Marusan Comptoir Japonais, a Japanese restaurant that specializes in donburi, bento, and sushi! For our Annual General Meeting, the team at Marusan is putting together a varied menu of small Izakaya-style dishes and sushi!

Any level of involvement is welcome and appreciated: a team of annual executive positions and collaborative seasonal support positions ensure that management, operations, and events can run smoothly. Certain conditions apply for signatory positions.
