Mid-South JETAA is looking for alumni interested in revitalizing the chapter - we need volunteers for everything from one-time events, like organizing a JET Info Session at a local university, to one-year commitments, such as serving as an officer and representing our chapter at the National Conference. We will be holding a JETAA Mid-South Informational Meeting via Zoom to answer your questions about our chapter. See below for details. And, please help spread the word about Mid-South JETAA by forwarding this newsletter to any alumni you know or emailing us their contact information and joining us on Facebook or LinkedIn.

Building our JETAA Community Initiatives
Ongoing | JETAA Mid-South wants YOU for our Steering Committee!
Most of us are finding that we have a bit of spare time these days as we shelter at home and stay socially distant. Why not spend some of that time hanging out and making plans with your JETAA Mid-South friends!

Above all, remember that JETAA Mid-South is laid-back - so we're not expecting our Steering Committee to change the world. We're a small community focused on keeping our community healthy and having fun in the process.
