There are many organizations related to Indians in Japan say the Tokyo Marathi Mandal or Tamil Sangham and so on. AJAI will request these organizations to elect a member to serve as a representative in AJAI and liaison with AJAI for efficient flow of information and support.
AJAI will nominate regional volunteers of the association in every prefecture of Japan. People requiring information or help from the association, will first contact the representatives in their respective prefectures. The regional representatives will be expected to provide full support against such inquiries through the executive volunteers.
The founding volunteer committee will consist of 15 members, who will draw the outline and form the basis of functioning of the association. While executive volunteers committee will drive the day to day management of the association, Founder volunteers committee will make sure that the working is within the ideology of the association. The President, two Vice Presidents, one auditor, one Embassy Liaison will be elected through majority votes of the founding committee members.
Every member of the founding committee contributes 25,000 (twenty five thousand) yen as one time non-refundable membership amount. Founding committee membership is perennial as far as the member continues to live in Japan and is active. In case a member leaves Japan for a longer or an unforeseeable duration, or is inactive, or misconducts, the said member can be removed through a majority vote of rest of the founding committee members. In such case a new member can be proposed by any of the existing founding committee members and brought into the founding committee through majority vote of the existing members.
