On April 1, JETAA Chicago's next chapter begins! And to celebrate the transition, we are starting a new tradition with the inaugural KANSOUGEIKAI!

A combination of a Kangeikai (welcome party) and a Soubetsukai (goodbye party) on Friday, March 26, join your fellow alumni (from across all generations) for an evening of casual conversation and fun community building as we kick-off the next 12 months with a bang!

-Doors open at 7:00PM CST and the event will last until about 9:00PM CST. Attendees are welcome to join for as long as they like at any point during that time period.

-BYOB (water or tea will do just fine!) for the official "KANPAI!" around 7:30PM CST.

-Event theme (optional) = Your Enkai Best! Enjoy dressing up for enkais? Have something you wish you could have worn? Well show us your enkai best as we celebrate together! Including but not limited to fashion, zoom backgrounds, accessories and more!

-Activities will include icebreakers, fun trivia and games spread throughout the night, with plenty of time for casual conversation as well!
