Predeparture Seminar Leaders Needed

Dear JET Alumni,

It’s that time of year again when we help to prepare newly selected JETs for their upcoming adventures in Japan.  We are looking for volunteers to help out with the Pre-Departure Seminar this year on SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 2009 at the Nippon Club in midtown.  If you are interested in leading any of the following small group discussions, please send an email with a brief outline of what you would cover for the specific topic to president@jetaany.org.  Also if you are interested in helping out in a non-presenting capacity, please let us know that as well.

The main topic of discussion at our June 4, 2009 Quarterly Meeting will be the Pre-Departure Seminar, so if you are interested in helping out please join us there next week. The Quarterly meeting will be held at A Café, 973 Columbus Ave, btwn 107th/108th (B,C to 110th St – Cathedral Pky. RSVP to Chau Lam at community@jetaany.org ASAP if you are interested.
