SO SIG would like to welcome Membership Chair Laura Macfarlane and Treasurer Jared Wangen to the team! Good luck and godspeed!

The SIG AGM and forum were both successful. We elected a new officer, Robert Sieveking, who will be serving as Programs Chair. Rob Olson has moved to Publications, fittingly since he designed our logo and edited our first SO SIG Newsletter. Check our our facebook page (JALTSchool Owners SIG) and keep an eye out for updates!
We’ve made a handy schedule of all our official SO SIG events and members’ events at the 2015 National Conference this November. There’s one change from the schedule given in the last newsletter: the School Owners’ Debate will now be held Sunday, Nov. 22 from 5:15 to 6:45 PM in Hikae 1 (1F). Hope to see you all there!
The School Owners SIG will have both a debate and a short meeting at this year’s National Conference. The debate will be on Saturday, November 21st from 5:15 to 6:45 PM in room 907. Our general meeting will be on Sunday, November 22nd from 12:45 to 1:30 PM in room 1003. Stop by, grab a copy of our newsletter and let us know what you think of the SIG’s progress this year.
The year 2015 has been a busy one for the SO SIG. First, we published our first newsletter, which both members and non-members are invited to download and enjoy. Second, our Treasurer Mark Makino made a presentation at this year’s PanSIG Conference in Kobe. As summer draws near we look forward to filling the second half of the year with even more activities for our members and for school owners around Japan.
