May 135h, 2011: THE CJS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING and Movie Night

You are cordially invited to The Canada Japan Society’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Friday, May 14th, 2010 at the National Film Board of Canada.

Following on the success of last year’s format we are again combining the AGM with our Movie Night and ever famous, all-inclusive Japanese food and drink reception for a memorable night! The event will start off with the AGM part of the evening.
An overview of what the CJS has done this past year will be given, along with goals for the upcoming year and future. Other topics will include the important election of the 2011/12 Board of Directors (non-members will not be allowed to vote).

This will be followed by a special screening of the 2009 comedy/drama “The Dark Harbour”. This charming film tells the tale of a lonely fisherman from a small village and his unusual quest for love.

It’s a perfect time for old and lapsed members to renew their memberships. For non-members it’s a great time to learn a bit more about the CJS and have a fun night with a movie, Japanese food, and drinks. Non-Members are invited to become members at this event. If so, you get in free to the event, saving $20 off your annual membership price! (Regularly $50 for individuals, $70 for families, $25 for students and seniors.)

CJS members receive free admission to all Ichimokukai events throughout the year, as well as discounted admission to most other events, including our movie nights.

May 5th, 2011: ICHIMOKUKAI

Ichimoku-kai literally means the "first Thursday meeting" and since 1995 it has been the Canada Japan Society of Toronto's monthly social event, naturally on the first Thursday of every month.

It is a great place to make new friends, practice your English and/or Japanese, informally network, learn more about life in Canada and Japan, and most of all…have fun! Our attendees are usually around 50 percent Canadian and 50 percent Japanese, all with a common interest or connection with Japan.

At Ichimoku-kai you will receive special food and drink discounts, get to talk to lots of interesting people, and have the chance to win some exciting door prizes.
