Come instill some life into your soul near the end of winter as JETAA visits the National Art Gallery of Canada. Then come fill your belly at the Earl of Sussex afterwards. On Thursday, March 19, we will be meeting in the lobby of the National Art Gallery of Canada (380 Sussex Drive) at 6:00 pm. We’ll spend a couple hours expanding our minds with a stroll through the gallery. Engage in lively conversations with other JET alumni about the nuanced differences of art in Canada versus in Japan; or just come to look at some funky colours! Museum admission is free. Shortly after 8:00pm we will head across the street to the Earl of Sussex pub for some drinks and food. Admission is free, but you’ll have to pick up your own bar tab. JET alumni, friends, and family are all welcome to attend either or both parts of the evening. For more information or to RSVP, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

As we make our way into the New Year 2015, the new JETAA Ottawa executive has been busy planning our winter activities! At a very successful first meeting, the new members were formally introduced to each other. I wanted to personally welcome all the new faces to what will hopefully be a great year working together. Say hello to our new executive:
This year NEJETAA will be hosting the 2nd Annual Northeastern Region Ski Trip from February 6th to 8th. We will be going to Killington Ski Resort, which is the largest Ski area in the eastern United States. We will be staying at the Cascades Lodge, which is a full service hotel with a pub and common areas for hanging out. It also offers a indoor swimming pool, a Finnish Sauna, and a hot tub. A hot breakfast is available on an individual basis for $15. Additionally, for those who are not interested in skiing, the Killington area offers much to do. There are options for individuals do Cross-Country Skiing, Snowshoeing, and other winter activities. Killington Resort is also only 35 minutes from the lovely town of Woodstock, VT with many options for eating and shopping; and 20 minutes from the Long Trail Brewery.

We are hoping to fill a number of positions (details on positions available below) through an election process. Therefore, not only do we would need candidates to be present, we also need Alumni to help us elect new and returning members to the future BoD.
