JETAA New York’s 30th Anniversary Gala

Dear JETAANE,
The Exec Board at JETAANY wanted to reach out to make sure you’re aware of and are welcome to attend the the 30th Anniversary Gala in NYC on February 3rd!
We only have space for a little over 100 people so we especially wanted to be sure our New England friends didn’t miss out if you want to attend. (We’ve sold over 60% of the tickets since December 1st!)
The gala is a black tie optional event that includes dinner, open bar, a sake-barrel opening ceremony and toast, entertainment, speeches, a silent auction, a taiko performance, and other activities. The cost is $82 pp thanks to a couple  grants we were able to secure to off set the price.
As our neighbors and friends, we value being able to do joint-events with you and hope you’ll consider joining us at this special evening. After-all, what better excuse to do a night in NYC than a gala celebrating your favorite program!
Tickets can be purchased on the website:
Check out the FAQ section at that link for info or feel free to email us at gala@jetaany.org with questions. We have not posted housing information, but there’s a chance we could try to find Boston folks a “tatami-timeshare” style option, so let us know if you need it. We’ll also be posting updates to our FB page: jehttps://www.facebook.com/jetaany/
Thank you and hope to see you in February! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

NEJETAA 5th Annual Ski Trip! 1/26-1/28

 

This year NEJETAA will host our 5th Annual Northeast Region Ski Trip from January 26th – 28th at Killington Ski Resort, the largest ski area in the eastern United States.
