June Meeting Updates

Meeting no.5 held at Seed Bagel. Here’s what we discussed and the latest updates.

Branding (LOGO) – festivals – and we need a simple massage – some key topics we are focusing on…

  • Official NPO
  • Great image and brand
  • Getting out and speaking to community
  • Simple understandable message.

Our simple message is split into three headings….

  1. Niseko wide business green scheme
  2. Over development and building regulations
  3. Food, faring and conservation

Three types of NPO in Japan – For now the Unincorporated Voluntary Association is the easiest and best place to start for a small charitable organisation. This allows us to have a bank account and seem more serious.

Next week I will also be preparing paperwork for this. But to do this I need to create a charter and membership list of three.

President (I will continue), Philip John Howell

Vice-president (ideally looking for an active vice president, perhaps Japanese, if anyone knows a keen green Japanese local that would be great)

Treasurer (Jonathan Amos who sadly cant make it today has already spoken to me about this and is happy to lend his experience.)

Please have a think on this and come see me afterwards if you know of anyone.
