JCCA AGM March 15
On March 15, 2014 the GVJCCA will hold its Annual General Meeting at Nikkei Place from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in the GVJCCA office at Nikkei Place. We are currently accepting nominations for our Board of Directors for the upcoming term (see page 43). The GVJCCA is seeking individuals interested in working in the Nikkei community with the aim of fulfilling our society’s purposes. Those purposes include the following: (1) to protect and promote legal rights and freedoms for all persons; (2) to promote the arts and culture of Japanese-Canadians through the organization of community and cultural programs; (3) to improve Canadian awareness of the history of Japanese-Canadians and to promote the study of the Japanese language; and (4) to provide facilities and care for low-income elderly persons of Japanese descent in the Greater Vancouver area.
