The 2017 Akita Returners and Recontractors Conference (平成29年度再任用者及び帰国者研修会) will be held on Friday May the 26th 2017 at the Personnel Training Center in Tenno.

JETs will be split up into two groups: Returners (those leaving JET) and Recontractors (those staying another year). Returners will learn about topics such as how to receive their pension refund, how deal with Japanese taxes, and the rules regarding returning airfare, goodbye speeches, settling your affairs, and dealing with life after JET.

Presentation slots are now open. Please speak to a PA if you have any ideas!
