Dear MAJ members,
The registration deadline is only 4 days away. If you know anybody who hasn't made a decision yet, please urge them to register in time. The payment of the participation fee (= membership fee) is due on Monday, February 16. Please make sure you pay the fees in advance for the Moot.
We are now applying for an official endorsement (koen meigi) from the boards of education of Kyoto City and Kyoto Prefecture. We are hopeful of getting them. The endorsement is expected to make participations from elementary and high school teachers easier.
The Moot is held on a weekend at a tourist-mobbed city of Kyoto. Waste no time in booking a hotel, if you haven't got one yet.
An AGM will be held on the 21st. The agenda has been proposed on the Moot page (see the link above). If you are willing to help the association by running for the presidency or any of the director/committee member position, please let us know soon.
Lastly, though I hope many people attend the workshops on the first day,,,,,, here is an announcement for English speakers.
Walking tour of Kyoto
A walking tour will be sponsored by the Kyoto Sangyo English Studying Society (ESS). Meet at 1pm at the Holly's Cafe on Friday afternoon, Feb. 20. Free of charge. The participants will visit Yasaka Shrine, Kiyomizu-Dera and the Gojo-Zaka area with its many specialty shops.
