JICA ALUMNI SOCIETY OF MALAYSIA (MyJICA)
Since 1945, Japan has been the host to a total of over 130,000 participants in Japan. All of these ex-participants have been active in a variety of fields upon return to their home countries. They established or join the JICA Alumni in their countries. So far there are 102 associations in different countries world wide. MyJICA, the JICA Alumni Society of Malaysia was officially registered with the Registrar of Societies in 1988 under the Society Act 1966 (registration no.747/88 Wilayah Persekutuan). Since its inception, myJICA acts as a bridge in promoting understanding and fellowship between Malaysia and Japan as well as amongst all JICA participants. To date, myJICA has over 5,000 members. The association is committed to provide a platform for members to share their knowledge and experience that they have learnt in Japan with communities, the government and beyond. MyJICA, is currently making aggressive efforts to have more members as it is obviously understood that the strength of any association lies with its membership. All ex- JICA training participants from Malaysia can apply to be a member of JICA Alumni Malaysia. Out of more than 8,000 Malaysians who have undergone various technical training programmes in Japan sponsored under JICA, about 5,000 have joined myJICA. MyJICA is led by MyJICA Executive Council (Exco). The council is made up of 16 members comprising the President, two Vice-Presidents, Hon. Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Hon. Treasurer and ten Exco members. The Council conducts its meeting every month and holds its Annual General Meeting once a year. Election of Exco Members is done every 2 years.
