Fellow JAT members,

When the clock strikes midnight tonight in Japan (00:00:01 JST on February 26) we begin accepting candidacy registrations at < https://jat.wufoo.com/forms/jat-2015-board-candidacy/ >.

The candidacy declaration/registration period ends at 22:00:00 JST, March 11, and the campaigning period starts at 00:00:01 JST, March 13. However, since the Election Committee needs time to verify eligibility and endorsements, we strongly encourage candidates to submit their candidacy statements early.

We remind you that candidates for director must have been JAT members in good standing for the entire year preceding the deadline for submitting candidacy statements, and that the three endorsers must be members in good standing as of the date on which they submit their endorsement statements. We also request that endorsers send a brief e-mail to < [email protected] > confirming the names of each candidate they endorse. The Election Committee may follow up, if necessary.

The Election Committee looks forward to receiving many registrations and to a hotly contested election.

2015 JAT Election Committee
