If you have any questions about the basic plan of the ward or points to keep in mind when working in the community, you can also consult with the Regional Power Promotion Office of each ward office or branch.
In addition to reconfirming and sharing your objectives and achievement goals, let’s discuss and think once again within the group whether the business content you are thinking about is the best way to achieve your objectives. In addition, for continuing projects, let’s thoroughly summarize the efforts made so far and organize the points for improvement and novelty so that they can be reflected in the application form.
