    SACCJ会員各位

     

    SACCJJMEC 共同プロジェクト へのご協力のお願い


    昨年のSACCJ総会において、今年開催される第26回JMEC (Japan Market Expansion Competition)SACCJがクライアント団体として参加することが、会員の皆様の多数決により決定いたしました。

     

    JMECは25年の歴史を持つ若手ビジネスパーソン向け研修プログラムです。各年度のJMECプログラムでは、参加者に企業や団体向けの具体的な事業計画を策定し提案させ、その内容のクオリティーをお互いに競わせることをプログラムの中心に据えております。具体的には、各年度のJMEC参加者は、先ず数名からなるチームに分けられます。そのうえで各チームはJMECからの事業計画の提案を希望する企業・団体(クライアント)に個別に割り当てられ、担当クライアントの要望に応じて具体的な事業計画の作成・提案を行うことになります。事業計画作成作業の開始に先立ち、各チームのメンバーに対しては、作業に必要なレクチャー、トレーニングや指導が各分野のビジネスのプロから数か月にわたって提供されます。

     

    今年度のJMECプログラムは既にスタートしており、SACCJに対してはチーム“Invictus”が割り当てられました。そしてチームInvictusに対しては、SACCJの会員向けサービスの強化、会員ベースの拡大および組織としての持続可能性向上に向けた3か年計画の作成を委託しました。

     

    チームInvictusはこの事業計画作成に向けた作業の一環として、2月19日ごろを目処にSACCJ全会員に対する調査を実施する予定です。つきましては、会員の皆様にはこの調査へのご協力をお願い申し上げます。チームが事業計画を完成させるに当たっては、会員各位のご意見・ご要望が大変に貴重な示唆につながると信じる次第です。

     

    この重要なプロジェクトに対する皆様のご協力に、感謝申し上げます。

    Dear SACCJ Members:

     

    SACCJ JMEC Project: Your Cooperation Requested

     

    At last year’s General Assembly, the SACCJ membership approved the Chamber becoming a client of the 26th JMEC (Japan Market Expansion Competition).

     

    JMEC is a 25-year-old business training program centered on a business plan writing competition. JMEC assigns a team to each of their clients, to create a business plan for them. The teams are trained, mentored and tested by professionals over several months to research and deliver their business plans. JMEC is supported by 18 foreign Chambers of Commerce in Japan including the SACCJ (please see the attachment for more information).


    The JMEC process has started, and JMEC has stood up a team, “Invictus”, for our project. The Invictus Team is tasked with coming up with a three-year business plan for the SACCJ that will give us direction to strengthen our services to current members, attract new members, and overall strengthen the Chamber and improve its sustainability.

     

    As part of this work, the Invictus Team will be deploying a survey to all of our Members from around 19 February 2020. I would like to ask for your cooperation in taking part in this survey. Your opinions and insights will be very important for the team to formulate their business plan.

     

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support of this important initiative.

    The SACCJ is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Springboks great Chester Williams on September 6 of a heart attack in Cape Town.

    We were honored to host this rugby legend at an event in Japan in July 2014 and were looking forward seeing him back here for the Rugby World Cup.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and colleagues.

    Fellow South African,

    South Africans living or travelling abroad will be able to cast their votes at one of the 121 foreign missions around the world on Freedom Day, 27 April 2019. 

    To vote abroad you need to complete a VEC10 form by 13 March

    You will not be able to vote at a diplomatic mission overseas on Saturday, 27 April if you have not submitted a VEC10 form on the IEC's website by 13 March at midnight (UTC+02:00). 

    It only takes 2 minutes! 

    The VEC10 is an important form that all South Africans abroad will have to submit to the IEC to tell them that they plan to vote overseas and at which voting station they plan to vote. 

    Even as submissions of the VEC10 forms continue to be received by the IEC on their website, it is concerning to note that only 16,597 VEC10 forms have been submitted by South Africans to notify the IEC that they intend to vote out of the country. 

    This is considerably lower than the voter turnout in 2014 and especially low considering the number of South Africans that live abroad. We know it isn't easy to vote, but we also know that there are hundreds of South Africans living around the world who are eligible to vote, but don't know that they can vote and that they have to complete the VEC10 form. 

    Please share this message with your friends and family abroad to ensure they don't miss this unique opportunity to make their voices heard. 

    Together, we can build One South Africa for All but this starts with voting for an honest and caring government. 

    Please note: 

    • If you registered abroad to vote, you must still complete the VEC10 form
    • If you completed a VEC10 form in a previous election, you must complete it againin order to vote in the 2019 election. 
    • Finally, in order to vote you must be on the voters’ roll, and must have BOTH a valid SA ID book/temporary ID/smart ID card and an SA passport. You can only vote in person at your nearest South African foreign mission on 27 April.
