Join us on Monday, May 6th at 6:30 pm CST for our May Open Board Meeting! At our open board meeting, we will discuss upcoming events and more in the new term. And in order to honor the special day (May the Fourth...but on the Sixth!), the monthly meeting will be immediately followed by a virtual happy hour with a fun Star Wars twist! The meeting starts at 6:30 pm and the happy hour will begin around 7:30 pm, with the official "kanpai" at 7:45 pm. Relax with fellow JETs for a night of laid back conversation and fun group activities. Join us for one or both! 

Theme (optional): Wear your best Star Wars/Intergalactic space swag.

Sign up here! 

Open Board Meetings are open to alumni in our jurisdiction (Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana).

This month, for our language night, we'll be diving into the world of AI! Join in for some activities related to opportunities for practicing language and playing language games with chatbots.

Not sure of your Japanese skill? No worries! The night will still be an opportunity for Japanese language practice for all skill levels. ぜひ来てください!

The Japanese Language Series events are intended to bring together JETAA members and supporters who want to stay engaged with Japanese language learning and use.
