JET ROI: JETAA Chapter Beat


JET Return on Investment (ROI) is a new category on JetWit intended to highlight the various economic, diplomatic and other benefits to Japan resulting from its investment in the JET Program.  Why is this important right now?  Because the JET Program and JET Alumni Association may be cut by the Japanese government, as explained in this post by Jim Gannon (Ehime-ken, 1992-94) titled “JET Program on the Chopping Block.”

It occurred to me tonight that the JETAA Chapter Beat posts that Jonathan Trace (Fukuoka-ken, 2005-08) has been pulling together since November 2008 provide a simple and nice overview of what various JETAA chapters are doing, especially in terms of Japan-oriented cultural outreach and community involvement.  The process is simple:  Jon subscribes to as many JETAA Chapter email lists, Facebook groups, etc. as he can find.  Then each post he copies and pastes a few interesting ones, and…voila!  JETAA Chapter Beat!

Here’s the category link:
