On Saturday August 5th, 2011, we are planning to have the Board Meeting in Osaka, the venue and time: TBA.   The advisers and new members are invited to join as observers.
The plan on joint activity with UH alumni group in summer was cancelled due to the heat and members’ schedule conflicts during the summer recess. Instead, we will plan a picnic or some fun gatherings sometime in the Fall.
