Fukuoka Chapter

Published: Sun, 12/14/2008 - 3:38pm

Fukuoka JALT usually holds meetings on Saturday evenings in Fukuoka city, often in Tenjin. Our meetings are often followed by a social dinner at a nearby restaurant. These after-meeting dinners usually require a reservation. Non-JALT members are welcome to join our after-meeting socials!

Our website is fukuokajalt.org. We're also on Facebook.

We hold an election for our core group of officers each year before the annual JALT conference, so it's usually in October or November. Any Fukuoka JALT chapter member is welcome to run for any of these five offices, regardless of whether or not the current officer plans on stepping down or not. If you wish to run for office, please let us know around September, because if there are more than one candidate for an office, we hold a full election with ballots mailed to each member of our chapter, so that takes some time to plan. However, if no office has more than one candidate, we simply approve the officers by a show of hands at our meeting held prior to the conference.
