Hello everyone,

Our website has moved!

The new address is:

Registration for the May seminar is once again open.

Please register as soon as possible if you have not already done so.  We need to send a list to Japan with the names of people who will be attending the seminar and we also need to be able to plan for how many people will be attending the banquet.

Please let me know if you have any issues with the website:

The reason our website had to move is that the UBC AMS abruptly shut down our site and is no longer hosting websites for clubs.
