Fukuoka JALT usually holds meetings on Saturday evenings in Fukuoka city, often in Tenjin. Our meetings are often followed by an informal social dinner at a nearby restaurant or bar. Non-JALT members are welcome to join our after-meeting socials!
We have a Fukuoka JALT group on Facebook. You can also follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
We hold an election for our core group of officers each year before the annual JALT conference, so it's usually in October or November. Any Fukuoka JALT chapter member is welcome to run for any of these five offices, regardless of whether or not the current officer plans on stepping down or not. If you wish to run for office, please let us know around September or October so we can plan the election. Regardless of whether more than one person is running for office, we will hold the election online.
