JETAANY would like to congratulate and welcome our new Executive Team.Â We look forward to hosting many great programs and events this year to engage our membership throughÂ promoting Japanese culture and understanding.
President â€“ Monica Yuki
Vice President â€“ Pam Kavalam
Treasurer â€“ Tommy Zhou
Secretary â€“ Wendy Ikemoto
We would also like to thank the amazing and endless contributions of Kendall Murano (Vice President 2011-2013) and Kelly Nixon (Treasurer 2009-2013).
Thanks to Kendall’s dedication to monthly Nihongo Dake Dinners we have more than doubled our reach to the Japanese community. Â Kendall plans to keep an active role in planning more of these social gatherings. Kendall also hosted the very successful Artist Showcase at the Ambassadors residence in 2010 to raiseÂ moneyÂ for the JETAA NationalÂ ReliefÂ fund along with her many hours or work on the 2009 National Conference in NY and the JETAANY Slate Fundraiser in 2010.
Kelly Nixon’s amazing attention to detail to keep JETAANY in good financial standing willÂ thoroughlyÂ be missed. Â Kelly not only managed all the finances for JETAANY for four years but also for the JETAA USA Japan Earthquake Relief Fund
which brought in over $100K+ from 2011 to 2012.
