Commemoration Banquet September 10, 2016
Sheraton Suites Calgary Eau Claire, Calgary, Alberta
The Calgary Japanese Community Association and the CJCA Community and Seniors Foundation proudly host the next Annual General Meeting of the National Association of Japanese Canadians (NAJC). Returning for the first time since 2007, Calgary plans to add some significant changes to the usual AGM routine, and member organizations, individuals, committee members and interested observers will definitely want to mark September 8-11, 2016 on their calendars. While we are still four months away from the event, we did want to release this information so that member organizations and individuals have some idea about what is in the works. Please note that the information below may be subject to change, and a website will be set up to provide the latest information about the AGM and National Conference.
We hope that all delegates will be able to arrive by noon on Friday, September 9, 2016 as the NAJC AGM will start at 2 PM on that day. The AGM will conclude at the end of the day. For those that are interested in sightseeing, delegates could arrive on September 8, 2016 and we would be willing to arrange for tours to the mountains or around Calgary.
Saturday, September 10, 2016 will feature a one-day National Conference with three streams of sessions: Heritage, Human Rights and Business Networking. The day will be capped by a Banquet commemorating the 100th anniversary of Japanese Canadian volunteers in World War I. In addition, a community trade show and vendor marketplace will be running all day, accessible during breaks/lunch hour and throughout the banquet.
Sunday, September 11, 2016 will conclude with a half-day session for NAJC delegates, which will wrap up by noon. The JCYLC will host their own sessions during this day and participate in the conference on Saturday.
