Pilot International to hold convention

Date Posted: 1999-04-16

About 400 women will gather at Zampa Royal Hotel this weekend for the 9th Pilot International Japan District Annual Convention. Participants, including Pilot International President Nancy Henrick from the organization's Macon, Georgia, headquarters, will hold discussions and seminars about volunteer and welfare work members conduct with various charities worldwide.

A delegation of about 20 women from the U.S. will accompany Henrick as well as delegates from Singapore and all 37 Pilot International clubs in Japan. Koza Pilot Club, one of the two Pilot International Clubs in Okinawa, is the convention organizer.

Pilot International, a women's volunteer club that works for several charities around the world, was established in 1921 in Macon, Georgia. Japan's first Pilot Club was started by Fusae Ichikawa and Taki Fujita in Tokyo in 1951 while the Okinawa Pilot Club has existed since September 86.

Pilot Clubs in Japan have about 1,000 members, who are most active in supporting charity work to help people suffering from brain disorders. Their charity work has earned the organization numerous awards, including endorsements from the U.S. president and vice president and the U.S. Alzheimer Association.
