Dear AAJA-Asia members,
Find a list of our newly expanded chapter board for 2012 after the jump. We have eliminated the two co-vice president positions and replaced them with four regional vice presidents. We think this will better serve the membership by focusing leadership in our regional hubs. As other regions gain enough members, we will consider adding regional VPs for them too. Separately, we have also begun a transition to two-year terms for board members to improve continuity.
Please welcome our new and returning board members and feel free to reach out to any or all of them with your ideas, thoughts, questions about AAJA. We are a volunteer and member-driven organization, and the more input and support we get from you, the better we will be able to serve all of you.
Thanks to everyone who stepped up to be on next year’s board. A special thanks also to two long-serving board members who are stepping down, National Board Representative Tomoko Hosaka and Chapter Secretary Ling Woo Liu. And thanks to Ling too for coordinating this year’s nominations.
We look forward to an exciting 2012 with more regional events and the Aug. 1-4 UNITY convention in Las Vegas. Finally, a reminder to renew your membership for next year if you haven’t already!
