Dear Member of the Steveston Japanese Language School Society:

On Tuesday October 17, 2017, the Steveston Japanese Language School Society is holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM). All adult students and parents of children attending the school are invited and each family is given a vote at the AGM. Your vote is important because it ensures board members meet their responsibilities and the school is run properly. As a member of the Society, you are invited and encouraged to attend this important meeting.

At the AGM, you will hear the President’s report and the Treasurer’s financial report, and elect the 2017-2018 Board of Directors.

We encourage our members to get involved! We are recruiting members to join our volunteer Board of Directors to help operate the school. If you have skills and talents that you would like to contribute to the Board, such as Human Resources, Grant Writing, Fundraising, Marketing, Business, etc., please let us know in advance of the meeting so we can add your name to the slate of nominees.

ACTION REQUIRED: If you are unable to attend the meeting, please help increase our participation numbers at the AGM by completing and signing the proxy form on page 2 and returning it to our office no later than Thursday, October 12, 2017.
