Dear Member of the Steveston Japanese Language School Society:

On Wednesday October 24, 2018, the Steveston Japanese Language School Society is holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM). Your membership gives each family 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.

The agenda of this year’s AGM includes:

  • President’s report
  • Treasurer’s financial report
  • Voting on the resolution to adopt new Bylaws and Constitution, and
  • Election of the 2018-2019 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 meet with you ahead of the AGM.

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 Monday, October 22, 2018.
