The holiday and travel season is fast approaching, along with opportunities to enjoy FCCJ’s reciprocal ties with press clubs abroad. We’ve got a total of 13 in Asia, the U.S. and Canada.

The weeks have been speeding by, thankfully with October’s cooler days and a 
whiff of fall in the air. On top of the agenda is our new membership campaign launched Oct. 1.

Despite the searing August heat and Obon holiday we had a lively month, with progress on
important issues, popular “Nights” and a history-making PAC luncheon with a Hollywood rebel.
Business first. After months of interviews and heated debate, the board of directors agreed

Wow, there’s nothing like starting off with a bang. I knew the president’s job came with issues
but I never realized how many. (I’m appreciatingformer president Georges Baumgartner
more and more for his three-year tenure!) The six items below are top priority for the Club.

First, sincere thanks to everyone who made the effort to vote in the election for the board
of directors. 
I admit I used to be a lackluster voter. A few years back, I finally came to
realize how important it is 
for our membership. Your vote is a vote for the sustainability
and dynamism of our Club. (Okay, 
lecture ended.)
