Notice of Special General Meeting
To all members of the Greater Vancouver Japanese Canadian Citizens’ Association!
Saturday, February 25th, 2012 3:30 PM
Tonari Gumi, 511 East Broadway, Vancouver, BC
The Greater Vancouver JCCA (GVJCCA) Board of Directors would like to invite all its members to approve the sale of its 511 East Broadway property in order to collaborate with Tonari Gumi on the purchase of a larger building located at 42 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC.
This anticipated joint project will not merge the two organizations but will positively support their respective mandates. This opportunity will provide a unique way for our two community organizations to work together to improve services by providing much needed additional space to meet both the current and future needs of the Japanese Canadian community. Benefits will include expanded programming for our seniors, additional services for new immigrants and added facilities for our Japanese Canadian families and youth. As well as providing social support, these services encourage the education of Japanese Canadian history, arts and culture. The Greater Vancouver JCCA also continues to provide services guided by our constitutional democratic and human rights principles.
We welcome any questions in regards to this collaborative project. Please feel free to call the GVJCCA office at 604.777.5222 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to your attendance at this special general meeting at 3:30 pm, Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 511 East Broadway, Vancouver, BC.
