In the last 12 months the Society has held 13 events ranging from Coffee Mornings welcoming new people to Japan, Wine nights, Sports events, BBQ’s at the Australian Embassy, the Melbourne Cup luncheon and the Australia Day Ball - a number of which were fully sold out.
Whilst our events are focussed on having fun and bringing a bit of Australian culture to Japan we also have a serious side raising money for charity. I would again like to take the opportunity to thank my fellow committee members for their super human efforts which are all provided on a non-paid volunteer basis.
With the financial year at a close the Society will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 24 April 2012 from 7:30pm.
All paid members are welcome to join.
The following committee members will be standing for re-election at the AGM:
- Scott Reynolds – Treasurer
- Beynon Louey – Webmaster
- Judy Taylor-Borland – Sponsorship
- Mary Hanami – Coffee Morning organiser
The following positions are open for nomination this year:
- Vice President
- A number of committee members to help organise events throughout the year
Myself, and Trevor Reynolds the President and Vice President last year will be continuing in an advisory capacity to assist the new President and Vice President transition into the roles.
If you have been looking for the opportunity to get involved in a super fun society and give back to the community then now is the time to nominate yourself to one of the open positions. If you are interested please send an email with your name and contact details to
by Thursday 19 April 2012. We will then contact you.
We look forward to seeing many of you at the AGM on Tuesday 24 April 2012.
