The Member Development Committee plans and holds events with the goal of expanding the network of like-minded friends while promoting interaction and friendship among members.
We hold a salon inviting one of the members as the speaker. It is a small group meeting where participants can share the experiences the speakers have had in their personal life, special skills, hobbies, etc.
Visit to foreign embassies
Our association, which boasts international exchange as a pillar of its activities, holds an annual visit to one of the Tokyo-based foreign embassies by its members. We can meet the embassy staff and hear their presentation on the traditions, cultures and arts of the host foreign countries more directly than we usually see and hear in the media.
Welcome receptions for new members
At the beginning of the year, we invite a group of new members for an orientation and welcome reception. Each committee’s leaders explain their respective activities. After this, all attendees join an opportunity for social networking.
MUA members’ New Year party
In addition, we regularly hold an annual new year party in January. It provides a good opportunity to promote friendship and kick off a new year.
Our membership is made up of people at all ages and people of diverse nationalities. If you are interested in “UNESCO activities,” please feel free to contact us. You are always welcome.
