〇YAGI Yohei (10th Anniversary Committee Leader)

Dear Alumni

Hello, my name is Yohei Yagi and I am the chairman of the Planning and Implementing Committee of the APU Alumni Association’s 10th Anniversary. As you all know, this year is APU Alumni Association’s 10th Anniversary and it will soon come to an end. All of us, 22 chapters and over 600 alumni, have celebrated this 10th anniversary and connected to each other. We will hold the grand finale Beppu to commemorate the end of the anniversary and celebrate a new starting point. It will be on November 1st and 2nd, on the same days that the Tenkusai will take place. So this is not only the finale, but also a chance to enjoy APU, the Tenkusai and Beppu city. We expect friends to come from all over the world that day.
We would like to invite you to come here to Beppu not only as guests, since we also plan to organize events which you can be part of. I look forward to seeing you here in Beppu on that day.

〇YOSHIDA Seitaka(Alumni Association Chairperson

Dear APU Alumni,

Hello, I am Seitaka Yoshida, the Chairperson of APU Alumni Association. It has been 10 years since APU produced graduates after it’s inauguration in 2000. In other words, it has been 10 years since APU Alumni Association was established. The number of alumni now goes over 10,000 people from 120 countries all around the world. I think I am not exaggerating when I say that APU Alumni Association is now a global organization. Chapters from countries and regions all around the world have conducted various events to commemorate this 10th anniversary milestone. Finally, to tie all alumni bonds together, we will hold the finale in Beppu. I want this event to be our chance to reflect on the road we have walked on the past 10 years and also the first step to put a start to the next 10 years. Our 10th Anniversary Implementation Committee, Chapters, and volunteer alumni have been meeting to make plans to welcome alumni from Japan and overseas. We are working on a program even better than the Home Coming Day held in 2010 so everyone can enjoy it.

I hope that the Finale of the 10th Anniversary of APU Alumni Association will be a chance not only to deepen our friendship with our old friends but also to have new encounters. I sincerely hope all of you can participate.
