June 23, 2015: Annual General Meeting of the Canada Japan Society and reception

The Canada Japan Society (CJS) cordially invites our members and friends to our 2015 Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, June 23rd!

Once again, our Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at the beautiful offices of McMillan LLP, featuring a spectacular view of Toronto from the 44th floor! The evening will start off with the formalities of the AGM when we will provide an overview of what the CJS has done this past year and outline our goals for the upcoming year and future. Other topics will include the important election of the 2015/16 Board of Directors (non-members will not be allowed to vote).

The evening will also include a special presentation about cinematic sound effects by Goro Koyama, Emmy Award-winning foley artist.   Goro Koyama has worked on such films as Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, American Hustle, Cloverfield and the Japanese remake of The Unforgiven, and has recently created the creature sounds for a Japanese film KISEIJU (PARASYTE), which was based on a popular comic series. 

And don’t forget about our always popular ALL INCLUSIVE RECEPTION featuring great JAPANESE FOOD and DRINKS.  Admission to the AGM is FREE for current CJS members (who have paid membership dues for the current year) and $20 for non-CJS members.
