To All FCCJ Members,

There is a consensus on the 2014-2015 Board of Directors that we need to open new and better channels of communication with the FCCJ membership. This concern is prompted by two developments under our new system as a public-interest corporation.

First, we now have three members of the Board who are Associate members of the Club. This means that not only the several hundred Regular members may now participate at the highest level of Club governance, but almost all of the membership. We thus wish to encourage our FCCJ Associates to take a keener interest in Club policymaking and to contribute positively.

Second, the system of quarterly General Membership Meetings no longer exist under the new Bylaws. Instead, the only regularly scheduled GMMs will come every March and June. One disadvantage of this system is that future Boards might have fewer opportunities to receive direct feedback and much-needed suggestions from our membership.

As one part of our effort to address this matter, the 2014-2015 Board of Directors has decided to institute a monthly "Meet the Board" event to which any FCCJ member who was interest is invited to come and talk to us.

For this month's inaugural "Meet the Board" event, we will gather from approximately 18:00-20:00 in the Main Bar on the evening of Wednesday, October 15 (tomorrow).

We hope to see some of you there!

Board of Directors
Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan
