In the last 12 months the Society has held 13 events ranging from Coffee Mornings welcoming new people to Japan, 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 Saturday 27 April 2013 from 5:45pm, just before the AST Spring Picnic.
All paid members are welcome to join.
The following committee members will be standing for re-election at the AGM:
- Alex Byrne - President
- Martin Giles - Vice President
- Scott Reynolds – Treasurer
- Beynon Louey – Webmaster
- Judy Taylor-Borland – Sponsorship
- Sally Townsend - Event Co-ordinator
- Nina Godoy - Event Co-ordinator
The following positions are open for nomination this year:
- Membership Manager
- A number of committee members to help organise events throughout the year
If you have been looking for the opportunity to get involved in a fun and rewarding 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 2013. We will then contact you.
We look forward to seeing many of you at the AGM on Saturday 27 April 2013.
