Network_Seminar_FY2011-2.JPG  Since 1997, when the Non-Profi t Organization(NPO) Law was established, there has been rapid movement toward the transformation of volunteer groups into incorporated NPOs. At the seminar above, Professor ADACHI, an expert of welfare and nursing care of elderly people in Asia, presented front line theories regarding research on volunteer activities and NPOs.

  Professor ADACHI’s explanation left the audience with many interesting questions, such as whether the end of volunteer activities was coming; how the transformation into incorporated NPOs would be developed in the future; and the relationship between donations and mutual interests. The seminar was so informative that many audience members wanted to hear more.
