A nice assortment of beer and appetizers will be provided for those who attend!

RMJETAA Board Elections 2014: We Need You!

JETAA Rocky Mountain needs you!

It’s the time of transitioning for our Board Members.  This year is especially important as most of our long-term Board Members are stepping down due to exciting life changes.  So this is your chance to “career up” and get involved!  We’re looking for motivated members who would like to be part of the team that creates cultural events, supports returned and soon-to-be JETs, and continues to build that bridge between the US and Japan.  You’ll have an opportunity to connect with not only the RMJETAA and other Japanese communities in the Rocky Mountain area, but also to be a part of the extensive national network.  We have plenty of opportunities for you to join the team!

President: Run monthly meetings. Coordinate the work of Board Members in planning and executing events and support activities.  Attend National and Regional Conferences and manage communication at the national level.  Network within the Japanese American community and collaborate with other organizations.

Vice-President: Fill-in for President and assist with all functions of the organization.

Events Coordinator: Lead in planning annual events, connect with community resources, and manage communication and promotion of events.

Secretary: Maintain meeting minutes.  Manage communication to member-base. Maintain member database and organization inventory.  Maintain attendance at meetings and events.

Treasurer: Coordinate with the RMJETAA board members and plan the annual budget, breakdown the budget for each individual event, maintain the bank account, reimburse members as needed, make necessary maintenance / supplies purchases for the organization.

Please contact for more information.  If you would like to run for one or more of these positions, please submit your platform to the above e-mail address.  Your submission will consist of a paragraph of why you are running for the position and what you would like to accomplish.  We will hold our elections meeting on Sunday, May 4th at 10AM at Common Grounds in Denver.


(Based on attendance the location of the meeting may change.  Please RSVP by April 27th so we can contact you if necessary)
