We need your involvement! We are looking for JETAA members to step up and create new leadership for JETAA Portland. If you’ve been thinking about getting involved, now’s your chance!

The success of our chapter depends on the strength of leadership as well as the involvement of every member of the chapter. We hope you consider an officer or committee chair position in our upcoming elections. If you are interested in learning about any of the positions, click here for our bylaws and position duties.

New Returnees, A great way to network & meet people! JETAA Portland is not just a social organization but also a network for like-minded people to help each other out. Becoming an officer or committee chair is a great way to become involved in the Japanese community and network in the Japanese circles that are very hard to find on your own. Many of our members found their jobs through their connections to JETAA & the Japanese community. You could too!
