Message from the President:
Dear JALT members,
It is my honour to wish you all first and foremost Happy New Year!
As you may know, I have recently taken over as the new JALT Niigata Chapter president. This position was passed on from the previous President, Dr. Melodie Cook, who did a stellar job in keeping the chapter alive and well. I hope to be able to continue this work.
As well as myself, we have had a flurry of new executive officers join the Niigata chapter. This is very exciting and we hope to be able to bring you events that meet the needs of our chapter members, and extend our educational boundaries.
Be sure to check out the information on upcoming events as we have several really interesting speakers scheduled for the first half of the year. In addition, the 9th annual NEAR conference is a great opportunity to participate in an ever improving local one-day conference. Closing date for the call for papers is February 17th 2017, and we welcome submissions from first time as well as veteran presenters.
Generally speaking, if you have any comments or suggestions for educational topics that you would like the chapter to work on, please don't hesitate to contact anyone on the executive committee, and we will do or best to accommodate the wishes of the members.
So, I hope that 2017 brings good health, happiness and of course educational satisfaction.
