The President’s Assistant has changed.  Ms. Takae Itakura, who served for the previous term, is leaving the office and Ms. Etsuko Sakamoto and Ms. Kana Matsuo are the new assistants.  We all know and appreciate Ms. Itakura’s enormous effort for and dedication to APASWE.  She has mainly functioned as communicator among member schools and national associations as well as board members.  We believe many of you had an excellent and pleasant time with her.  The Japanese Association of Schools of Social Work financially supported her work.  Thank you, Takae, very much!
Ms. Sakamoto and Ms. Matsuo worked at ISS (International Social Services Japan) several years ago and assisted with the 21st Asian and Pacific Social Work Conference recently.  Ms. Sakamoto has lived in the United Sates for two years and Ms. Matsuo spent three years in Fiji. 

President Office,
Assistant to President
