July 8, 2014: Annual General Meeting of the Canada-Japan Society, featuring an all-inclusive reception and Japanese music and art

The Canada Japan Society (CJS) cordially invites our members and friends to our 2014 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING!

Once again, our Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at the beautiful offices of McMillan LLP, featuring a spectacular view of Toronto from the 44th floor! The evening will start off with the formalities of the AGM when we will provide an overview of what the CJS has done this past year and outline our goals for the upcoming year and future. Other topics will include the important election of the 2014/15 Board of Directors (non-members will not be allowed to vote).

Our event will also include a presentation from Elizabeth Forrest, a local Canadian artist/printmaker who spent 11 years in Japan and specializes in Mokuhanga, or woodblock printing, and a performance by Linda Caplan, Canada’s premiere Koto and Shamisen musician.
