Candidate statements & bios

Editor’s note: The following have been formatted somewhat (section titles, order of items), but not edited for content. This is to give you the best sense of what the candidates mean in their own words. After president and vice-president, the sections are ordered alphabetically by each candidate’s surname.

President: Kevin Cleary

Statement of Purpose:
Over the years, JALT has been instrumental in the professional development of many thousands of teachers in Japan. If elected, my ultimate goals as President for the 2012-14 term would be to help JALT do an even better job of providing language teachers with opportunities for development, to transform the way JALT interacts with members, and to ensure that JALT retains its grassroots nature even as it standardizes and professionalizes its management processes. 
In the past two years the Board of Directors has worked hard to not only manage JALT’s current activities, but also to make it possible for JALT volunteers to spend more time on creative collaboration and less time on pernicious paperwork. For example, we have had workshops for Chapter/SIG treasurers, membership chairs and publicity chairs at recent Executive Board meetings. By creating and documenting new, rationalized processes, and then training the officers who give so much of their time and energy for JALT and its good work, we have helped improve the quality of the services offered to JALT members and decreased the administrative burdens borne by our fleet of volunteers and our staff at JALT Central Office. It may not sound exciting, but reducing the time spent on administrative matters allows for more time to be devoted to creative work and, as a result, all will have a much better experience with and through JALT. 
With the foundation we have laid in the past two years in place, I look forward to helping JALT reach its potential by involving more people in our important activities at the local and national levels so that we can work together to fulfill our ultimate mission of improving language education in Japan. Thank you.

Director of Programs: Steve Cornwell

Statement of Purpose
In my JALT service blurb you can see that I have volunteered for a variety of positions since 1994 when I was asked to be conference handbook editor for the Nagoya Conference.  The past two years serving as Director of Program have been full and rewarding! I have learned a lot and together with the conference team we have accomplished a lot.  For example, in the area of programming, we have been able to do some long range planning for future JALT conferences, have set in place an online conference feedback system (that had over 400 responses),  
It is an honor to have been nominated and if re-elected, I pledge to continue working on the strategic long-term program planning that has been begun.  In addition to continuing long range planning, I would like to explore how JALT members might possibly be better served by the development of some “How to Present” workshops similar to the popular and useful “How to Publish” sessions that Publications has been doing for years. This is something that I was not able to do in the past two years. And I want to focus on supporting the month-to-month programming that chapters and SIGs work on throughout the year.
Ever since I first heard the Outward Bound motto, “To serve, to strive, and not to yield” while on one of their trips in the mid-80s, it has stuck with me. Isn’t it a great motto?  It has helped me focus my efforts both personally and professionally, and this includes, of course, my volunteer work with JALT. Having served in co-coordinator, co-editor, and co-chair positions, you can see that I am a big believer in collaboration. I look forward to continuing to work with you as we tackle new challenges!
今回のご推薦は私にとって大変光栄なことであります。プログラムディレクターに再選されたあかつきには,すでに開始されている戦略的長期プログラム計画に取り組んでいく所存です。また,継続中の長期計画に加えて,出版部門が長年にわたって行なってきた大好評の“How to Publish”ワークショップに匹敵するような“How to Present”ワークショップを実施することでJALTメンバーの皆様のお役に立てる機会を創出していきたいと思います。これは私が過去2年のあいだに実行することができなかったことのひとつです。そして、地方支部とSIG(分野別研究部会)が年間を通じて行っている月ごとのプログラムのサポートにもフォーカスをあてたいと思っています。

Statement of Purpose:
The two years I have served as JALT Director of Treasury have been challenging but also very rewarding, as I have had the chance to work with an extremely dedicated team of directors and other national officers, JALT Central Office staff, as well as Chapter and SIG officers. During this time, I have been successful in working with the JALT treasury team to streamline many of the treasury procedures, both at national level and at Chapter and SIG level. I have worked to improve the communication between Chapter and SIG treasurers and the JALT national team, by organizing Skype training meetings, and a Treasury Workshop. Also, we compiled a new Treasury Handbook, which details the duties of Chapter and SIG treasurers.
If duly elected, I plan to continue working hard with the JALT treasury team to maintain and improve JALT’s financial health. I consider that the main role of the Director of Treasury is to provide support for the other officers, both national and local. I hope to continue to provide a clear financial picture, which will allow JALT to provide the best possible service to its members. I would very much appreciate your support in this endeavor.
現在私はJALT本部の財務担当理事として活動しています。財務担当理事としての責任は重大ですが、熱心で精力的な理事やJCOスタッフやチャプターやSIGオフィサー達と共に働けたことを光栄に思っています。この2年間JALTの会計チームと共に、チャプター、SIG、全国会計のさまざまな課題に積極的に取り組んできました。 各支部の会計係と全国会計チームの連携の向上に努めるためSkypeトレーニングや会計ワークショップなどを導入しました。また、活動内容を明確にするためチャプター・SIGの会計担当のマニュアルを作成しました。

Statement of Purpose
Over the past two years I have had the privilege of serving as the National Auditor of JALT. During that time I have been able to gain a deeper understanding of the inner workings of NPO JALT and its constitution.  
I know and understand that as the auditor I must take a neutral stance in order to focus on the business conducted by the directors, to inspect the assets of NPO JALT and to present my opinions to the directors regarding the manner in which they are exercising the responsibility with which we have entrusted them. If elected for two more years I will be able to apply the knowledge and skills I have acquired over the last two years to help the organization continue to run smoothly.

Statement of purpose
In four short years, I have been more than happy to consider myself a part of JALT, as a member of its rank and file as well as an observer of its inner workings. From 2009, I have worked with Aleda Krause, the current Director of Records, and other members of the Records and Procedures Committee. In that time, we have worked together to approve the constitutions of nearly every chapter and SIG in JALT, a minor but necessary task to allow JALT to function as an NPO.
As a candidate for Director of Records, I bring experience from both chapter and SIG perspectives. As Program Chair of Fukui Chapter, Coordinator of the Critical Thinking SIG, and participant of almost every Executive Board Meeting since November 2008, I have been given a wide variety of responsibilities in my brief time as a member of JALT. My hope is to continue the important work currently undertaken by the current Director of Records. Maintaining the vast historical record of JALT conferences, meetings and discussions is a necessary task to guide our policies for the future. Thankfully, Aleda Krause has done an excellent job in establishing this record. My responsibility, if given the chance, will be to add to this record and include its insight in our organization’s decision-making process. With the guidance of all my fellow JALT members, I look forward to this opportunity of serving you and this organization for the next two years.
Aleda KrauseはJALTの史的記録を作ったから、全てのJALT会員に感謝されています。書記担当理事として、私はこの史的記録を守って、JALTのために使えます。私にとって大きなチャレンジですが、他のJALT役員の指導と会員の支持から、書記担当理事としてよく頑張りますので、どうぞよろしくお願いいたします。
